Core in the Community

Portraits to Puppets

Portraits to Puppets is a specialized 5 month arts literacy program CORE is implementing with Pocasset kindergartens and Mr. Tracey’s Advanced Art Students at Tiverton High School.  This project is being organized and led by Tiverton Senior Emma Phillips for her senior project.  Kindergarten students will create a self portrait with the help of THS art students-that image will then be fabriacted into a puppet with the assistance of advanced art students and local artists.  Once the puppets are completed, artists and students meet and discuss the process, and kindergarten students will write, with assistance, a brief narrative on what it feels like to see their portrait come to life.  Family and friends will be invited to a gallery reception where art work will be on display.




Beginning September 8, 2018 CORE will be in the community providing arts enrichment programs to the children of Bourne Mill!  CORE continues it Second Saturday program from September 2018 thru June 2019 at Bourne Mill.  Each month there will be a different art format, giving children living in Bourne Mill the opportunity to explore all different art forms!  From acting & dance, to painting & writing, the creating and learning will last the entire year!  If you live in Bourne Mill and would like to participate in 1 or all of the classes, please sign up in the Bourne Mill Office.  Details of the program can be found by clicking the link below.
