Welcome to Theatre Arts and Technical Theatre with Ms. Silvas!
ABOUT Ms. Silvas
I have been teaching in the North Carolina Public High School System since 2014, while also managing my theatrical professional career throughout the Triangle and Triad area. I have professional experience working in front of the camera, behind the camera, on stage, back stage, and in the production scene shop as a carpenter, technician, and technical director with various productions, including opera, musicals, plays, commercials, and concerts in Texas, venues in Austria, Spain, France, and Italy, and right here in North Carolina. I thoroughly enjoy teaching students about the art form that is, sincerely, my passion.
My classroom is not the traditional classroom. I teach students about the intense production demands through project planning, observation, practiced application, and productive reflection to guide future endeavours.
In my class, we are learning about Design and Technology, Performance Preparation, Directing and Management, and Critical Script writing and Analysis.
At the top, you will see a slideshow of pictures displaying students working towards meeting the various demands of putting on a play/ musical and studying the theatrical production process.
In these modern times, I am working towards solutions regarding online learning. I have found an amazing and partner in VSDC regarding video editing so that students can receive quality instruction.
At VSDC, they believe that creative thinking is a crucial part of development. And that’s why they always wanted to make video editing accessible to everyone. This is exactly why they started their special program allowing schools to get free licenses of VSDC Pro for any required number of computers.
By providing a full-featured multimedia suite for processing video and audio files for free, they're hoping to help learners around the world achieve their goals and visualize their ideas. Who knows, perhaps one of the schools they’re cooperating with, already fosters the next Spielberg in training!
Please, feel free to reach out with any questions about participating in their program. Whether you’re a small school or a large university, we’d be happy and proud if you join our friendly VSDC family.
With their program you can:
Create engaging video lessons with a built-in screen grabber, picture-in-picture effect, and text captions.
Teach (and learn!) advanced video editing techniques with professional color correction and motion tracking tools
Make your school/university project an easy task with a slideshow wizard
Create your college TV programs with advanced Chroma Key and voice over tools
Highlight all your sports events with a timer, zoom and slow motion
