Join PAW’s Award-Winning After School Arts Education Programs.
Pick your favorite activity or try them all!
The summer of 2020 has shown that when children participate in interactive Zoom classes in the Arts it energizes and excites them for online learning, setting them up for academic success! It may seem counter intuitive, but when children are given the chance to participate in fun and uplifting activities through Zoom, it re-energizes them and opens their minds up to learning the important lessons and topics of school on a similar platform and actually counters Zoom Fatigue. Fun After School Zoom classes are the perfect way to help your child recharge each day with an activity that they are passionate about and that helps them to connect with others and express themselves in a healthy and creative way.

At this time when we cannot socialize face to face, it becomes more important than ever to create opportunities for children to feel normal, to do things that help make them feel happy, provide them with healthy outlets, and to socialize online with other children in a safe, well-structured educational environment. With school starting back up on Zoom this year, PAW’s After School Program is following suit giving us the opportunity to provide children with a more diverse catalogue of Arts workshops!

Thursdays     3:00pm-4:00pm (PST)     Mr. Kelvin

Should children be allowed to have cell phones in schools?  Should wearing helmets be mandatory when bike riding? Are video games beneficial or harmful? Which is better: the Harry Potter books or movies? These are just some of the issues and questions that kids ponder every day.  You have an opinion, but how do you prove that your opinion is the better opinion?  Working off of a foundation of voice, speech, and diction, we use debate and group discussions to teach students the art of organizing and articulating ideas, structuring and supporting arguments, listening and countering, and more, in a fun, safe, and non-competitive environment.  In this After School Debate Club via Zoom, kids will delve into a world of wordcraft where they will learn how to find their voice, empower themselves, and begin a life-long exploration of the majesty and wonder of words and ideas.

We are partnering with Project LEAD to give students the tools to deal with peer-pressure, develop empathy, constructive dialogue, civic-mindedness, self-confidence, public speaking skills, build a powerful vocabulary, an appreciation for words and ideas and learn the finer points of language arts.  Words and ideas can change the world!

All classes are scheduled in Pacific Standard Time.

Is protecting wildlife important? Is access to clean water a right or a privilege? Is it more ethical to adopt or shop for your pet? Our After School Debate Team is an in-depth experience that equips kids to share their perspectives and debate with confidence, empathy, respect, and conviction. They will learn how to take the information they are absorbing, determine credibility, read between the lines, analyze it, and then learn how to form and express their own opinions. Students will go on a journey through a variety of age-appropriate and relevant debate topics while learning the International Public Debate Association (IPDA) format. With each new IPDA in-class debate, kids ages 11-14 will focus on developing their skills under the following

commondebate categories: delivery, courtesy, appropriate tone, organization, logic, support, cross examination, and refutation. They learn how to structure arguments, find credible evidence, roadmap their points, ask cross examination questions, and consider opposing arguments. Within the Debate Team curriculum, students learn the basics of competitive debate and scoring by participating in in-class debates with their peers throughout the term. They will also walk away with skills in active listening, collaboration, persuasive writing, public speaking, leadership, critical thinking, and civic mindedness.

We are partnering with Project LEAD to give students the tools to deal with peer-pressure, develop empathy, constructive dialogue, civic-mindedness, self-confidence, public speaking skills, build a powerful vocabulary, an appreciation for words and ideas and learn the finer points of language arts.  Words and ideas can change the world!

Bringing your child’s Performing Arts Experience into the comfort and safety of your own home!

Parent Review of PAW’s Online Workshops Authored By: Alana, PAW Mom, Camper Age 10

My daughter Molly has LOVED debate — I think this experience has really given her a taste of ‘speech and debate’ for the future- maybe for middle school and high school! She’s really loved it and it’s been a great option for her. It’s made it difficult for her to choose between voice, acting with Kelly, and speech with Shaindi!

Parent Review of PAW’s Online Workshops Authored By: Kristine, PAW Mom, Camper Age 8

PAW’s workshops have been a savior for our family this summer. Not having in person workshops seemed like such a barrier to our daughter enjoying her summer break, but PAW was able to make Zoom workshops a success (and gave her parents some time to work). My daughter, Frankie participated in two weeks of workshops in June. She especially loved the Theater Games and Improv workshop with Ms. Kristy.

Ms. Kristy created interesting games and fun activities for the kids. Initially, Frankie was a little shy engaging with other kids through Zoom, but Ms. Kristy’s ice breakers and enthusiasm helped Frankie quickly warm up. By the end of the week, Frankie was eagerly waiting to log on and she loved being assigned an acting role in the mini scenes created by her fellow campers.  After the session was over, Frankie would play some of the games she learned with her family at home.  Thank you PAW for creating this memorable experience!

I can’t thank you enough, to Sam and to each of Julie’s teachers, Mr. Kelvin, Ms. Kelly and Ms. Natasha. They were really fun and amazing!
