As a Centre of Excellence Through the Arts, North Park Wilson School believes in the power of learning through artistic endeavours. Music, dance, drama and visual art can ignite students’ passion to become engaged citizens.
Creative Action is a specialized, full-year program for Grade 8 students who have shown leadership potential and a desire to cultivate their passion in the arts to make a difference in their community and beyond. Students collaborate with a variety of artists/partnerships throughout the city and province while working on Grade 8 curriculum in a creative, unique and experiential classroom. Creative Action nurtures Saskatoon's next generation of local citizens, artists and leaders.
Diverse Community Creative Action students come from neighbourhoods from across Saskatoon. As a result, the class is composed of students from diverse backgrounds. This diversity is an asset in our classroom as students learn to establish their voices and honour a variety of ideas and perspectives. Creative Action students have opportunities to collaborate creatively to spark positive change in our community.
By providing opportunities to explore, create, discover and strengthen skills through creative action, students will:
- Be engaged citizens who understand their rights and responsibilities to use their voice and take action
- Be confident leaders who connect with various communities in a meaningful way
- Explore cultural contexts of artists/art forms to recognize the relevance and power of the arts
- Inspire change through their creative expressions.
