Is your child interested in play, music, sound, and art? Rainbow Forecast Project is leading hands-on workshops for students ages 4–6 to learn about sound-making through play. The series of four workshops will end with a live public performance by the class, held at the Richmond Cultural Centre on Saturday, September 30 as part of Culture Days.

Each session will introduce new methods of music making and help to develop patience through active listening. Students will be learning basic circuitry, coding collaboratively using “Scratch”, building instruments, and playing lots of sound and movement games!

Register now for this unique opportunity, limited spaces available.

Registration is online at Eventbrite here.

Rainbow Forecast Project is a non-profit art and community initiative founded by Alanna Ho in 2016. The project aims to share children’s stories through new media and contemporary art spaces. Engaging youth in the process of creating and performing in public develops confidence in showing their work and expressing ideas; expands possibilities and potential for creative output; encourages collaboration with peers and creative professionals to develop social, digital and creative literacy; and exposes children to art beyond the traditional to media such as video, installations, theatre and soundwork so that youth can express their ideas in a multidisciplinary method.

Appleseed Children’s Playhouse is an indoor educational playground where we strive to create integrated activities and programs focusing on developing skills for school and life. Our curriculums are enriching, creative and inclusive for children of varied ages as well as abilities.  Our pedagogy is to foster the nurturing elements of iCARE: intelligence, Creativity, Achievement, Resilience, and Emotional. Our facilitators and playground supervisors engage children in sound, fitness, art, science, math, and technology activities that follow them to discover the wonders of learning.

Alanna Ho, Founder of Rainbow Forecast Project, is an interdisciplinary performer and educator, working in sound, installations and performance art.  As a freelance educator, she is passionate about engaging a welcoming creative space for children to immerse into an experimental approach to art and play.  Currently she leads new media and sound design workshops for children at the New Westminster New Media Gallery and with democratic school Windsor House through the Western Front in Vancouver.  She also facilitates experimental and interdisciplinary play sessions at Appleseed Richmond for ages 0-12.
