The Arts at the AHEA Convention

We are excited to share that there will be an opportunity for students and families to share their gifts in music, speech, and art at this year’s Convention. With these additions, we hope to encourage and inspire homeschoolers in these areas and to provide our students with an opportunity to share their talents with others. We look forward to hearing from many of you about your desire to participate!

 

Performing Arts Evening

We will be hosting a Performing Arts Evening from 7:00 – 9:00 PM in the Harvest Centre on Thursday evening, in which you, your child, or your entire family can participate! The categories are:

    • Vocal: solos or small ensembles
    • Instrumentals (including piano, brass, woodwinds, strings): solos or small ensembles
    • Poetry Recitations and Bible Memory selections
    • Open Category (upon approval): this could include a dramatic monologue, a short act of some type, etc.

Each solo category will have two age levels: ages 10 and younger, and ages 11 and older. Family groups are greatly encouraged and would be included in the ensemble category. Solo participants should limit their selections to approximately three minutes, while ensembles can be up to five minutes. (If we have more participants than can be accommodated on Thursday night, we will find another time slot in which to feature the performances.) A Selection Committee will choose three to five entries who will be asked to perform their selection prior to the last two sessions in the Main Conference Hall.

If you have more questions or would like to register for this Performing Arts Evening, please contact Kim or Kathy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. There will be a $5 fee for each entry (payable at the door on Thursday evening).

 

Art Show

Calling all homeschool artists ages 12 and up!

Bring your artwork for inclusion in our Homeschool Art Show. Homeschool students who register for the Convention may bring one or two of their favourite works of art either to the Performing Arts Evening in the Harvest Centre from 7:00 to 9:00 PM on Thursday or to the registration desk by 11:00 AM on Friday morning. The artwork should be on heavy paper, matted, or framed or in a shadow box or display case for display purposes. If you have a tabletop or floor easel to display your work, please bring that as well. Please attach a name card that includes your first and last name (or your first name and last initial if you prefer) and your age. The cost to enter your artwork is $5.00 per piece. A selection committee will be choosing five pieces of art work that will have the honour of being featured in an upcoming AHEA magazine and/or on the AHEA website.
