Join Kayla Sandusky to explore different ways of expressing and showing emotion through color, music and movement. This class looks at how we share our feelings and teaches students how to develop a toolbox to help them express their emotions to others.

Kayla Sandusky is a teaching artist focused on creative play, storytelling and collaboration. She graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.A. in theater and a minor in psychology. Sandusky is a member of the teaching artist cohort for the KS/MO Kennedy Center Partners in Education, focusing on the benefits of arts integration in schools and incorporating creative options into non-arts curriculum in schools.

Sandusky’s focus on teaching 21st century skills, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication has led to the “What Color Are You Feeling?” project. “What Color Are You Feeling” is an SEL-based workshop that explores the various styles in which students communicate. Through literature, creative movement, collaboration and imagination, students cultivate various ways of communicating their emotions.

Sandusky believes all people are natural-born artists and there is an art form for everyone. She teaches creative play and theater classes at the Lawrence Arts Center, as well as literacy-based theater classes at The Coterie Theatre. She can be seen stage managing at the Lawrence Arts Center and has been assistant director on productions at the Lawrence Arts Center and First Act Theatre Arts KC. She also is an actor for American Immersion Theatre in the Kansas City Troupe and a teaching artist on the student outreach team for the Kansas City Repertory Theatre.
