Sheridan hosts Project Pathfinder summer workshop

Sheridan once again was the host for the summer workshops– Project Pathfinder. Project Pathfinder is a summer program designed to give Aboriginal Secondary students aged 13-17 the opportunity to learn about various post secondary education pathways. Participating students can earn a dual high school and college credit. While at Sheridan, students experienced two workshops within the Faculty of Animation, Arts, and Design coordinated by Lesley Brown-Paterson. An animation workshop taught by Mario Positano and a broadcast television workshop taught by Greg Prince. The workshops are aimed to demonstrate a higher level view of each industry and to provide hands on activities to help inspire and encourage students who are considering their future opportunities. During the August 7th broadcast workshop Jamie Campbell host of Toronto Blue Jays telecast and previous play-by-play commentator spoke to students.

Peek Behind The Scenes: The Making of a Musical at Sheridan College

By Anne Whitehead In the past couple of weeks, I have had the great pleasure of exploring behind the scenes of Sheridan’s MacDonald-Heaslip Hall, to see what really goes into making a musical. This short video takes you back stage with me. I met with the Associate Dean of Visual and Performing Arts, Michael Rubinoff, to learn more about how Sheridan’s Music Theatre-Performance program works hand in hand with our Technical Production for Theatre and Live Events program. I was also able to interview student actors, costume designers, prop makers and set painters, who are all applying the skills they have learned in classes to collaborate on their graduating show at Sheridan College: Merrily We Roll Along. The show is being directed by famed Toronto theatre critic Richard Ouzounian, and runs from April 9 – 20 at Sheridan College’s Trafalgar campus.
