NAC-AEP


The National Arts Council-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) aims to provide all students with access to quality arts education programmes. The NAC-AEP is a database of specially selected arts education programmes that schools can purchase using an annual grant to subsidise part of the cost.

Faust offers 5 programmes endorsed by the NAC-AEP. Schools may use the Tote Board Arts Grant to subsidise the programme cost. There is a subsidy of up to 50% of the programme cost for mainstream schools, and up to 70% of the programme cost for Special Education Schools.

For Primary Schools:

  1. Acting for Beginners
    This workshop teaches the basics of acting and the positive attitude needed to work as a team. Through collaborative learning, students will be given plenty of opportunities to develop their acting skills while working toward a simple performance.
  2. Pop Up Book: Bringing Literature to Life
    This series of workshops explores an existing story using a variety of drama tools and media. The students will be transported into the world of the story using their physicality and imagination to create the characters and their surroundings. They will also get the opportunity to bring the story to life from page to stage.

For Secondary Schools:
  1. An Actor’s Toolkit
    In this workshop, students are introduced to the fundamentals of performance through improvisation, script analysis and/or the study of monologue materials. Special emphasis is placed on the study of practitioners, interpretation and translation of the dramatic script as the basis for exploration of characterisation, motivation and transition.
  2. Improvising & Devising Theatre
    Improvisation is an important part of any actors’ training, it help us out when things go wrong onstage, makes us creative when thinking of ideas and gives us confidence in difficult situations. In this workshop, students will explore using their improvisation skills in different ways, using props, making characters and getting to grips with reacting to someone else's ideas. Students learn to work as a team. As a company, they learn to support each other during performances.
  3. An Improv Jam: Speak Good English Lah!
    Improvisation is not just for jazz, rap battles, theatre and comedy. Principles of improvisation can be applied to one’s attitude towards learning and everyday situations. It can help one to cope with uncomfortable situations, creatively offer ideas, gain confidence to explore and approach learning with a fun and positive attitude. In this programme, students will hear a short talk by a speaker who has applied these principles in his work and everyday life. They will get to learn how they can utilise these principles in their capacity as students. For example, they can apply the principles of improvisation to practise using the English Language and explore grammar rules. Some lucky students will also get the chance to participate in Improv games and jam with professional improvisers after the talk.
