BRAZILIAN CARNIVAL ARTS with Luciano Porto (Regional Artist: WQSB)

The journey to the exciting world of Brazilian Carnaval begins. Drums, movement and colourful costumes
collide to create a mobile celebration of freedom and self-expression. In this series of five workshops,
participants explore dances, costume design, drumming ensemble arrangements and parading skills,
culminating in a mini carnival show that could be proudly featured at any school assembly!

Themes: This workshop provides an opportunity for discussion about belonging in Quebec in the general sense and as
a member of the BIPOC community.

Materials: Paper, fabric, glue and painting supplies. Instruments provided by the artist.

Grade Levels: Kindergarten, Elementary Cycle 1, 2, 3, Secondary Grades 7-11
