Living Pictures: A Theatrical Technique Across the Curriculum

© 2002 The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

This workshop is designed for teachers of grades 2-6. Led by Sean Layne, Kennedy Center Teaching Artist

This workshop explores a theatrical technique known as tableau. At its most basic level, tableau requires students to pose and freeze in order to capture and reflect on a moment in time. Applied to history, literature, or visual arts, tableau activities help students develop empathy for people and events they are studying as well as build students’ self-awareness and concentration. The workshop demonstrates a process every teacher can use to lead students successfully in creating and assessing tableaus.

For staff development leaders, the materials include:

  • Facilitator’s Guide (23 pp.)
  • Workshop on DVD (80 min.)
  • Music CD for use with warm-up and PDF of artwork
