Art with a Twist curated by Nadira Akter, M.ED
Art with a Twist explores various types of painting techniques and styles of art influenced by professional artists. While getting to know some artists, we will mimic those styles of art with a twist of our own. During the school year, students will discover mixing paint working with water color and acrylic mediums to create various works of art.
Acrobatics and Gymnastics
Beanstalk offers an introductory Tumbling course, specially tailored to suit young children. Students learn basic tumbling skills that include forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, bridge-ups, handstands and headstands. During the class, students practice exercises that increase their balance, agility, flexibility, strength and cardiovascular endurance. Giordano Acro’s personal trainers give each student a well-rounded and informative physical education class. Outside of these many physical benefits, instructors stress teamwork, sportsmanship, safety and classroom etiquette. Our hand-picked instructors make each class fun and engaging. We love what we do, and it shows!
