The class is a hands-on workshop which will teach the fundamentals of acting technique and speech performance.
Creative expression is an integral and essential part of human development. Robust opportunities to perform and create - in the visual arts, music and theater - encourage students to become creative problem-solvers, divergent thinkers, and positive risk-takers.
Through the experience of giving and receiving feedback, aiming for precision, and patiently committing to a process, students develop skills and behaviors that contribute to resilience and individual wellness. In addition to acquiring technical expertise, they become more perceptive and understanding, which enhances all of their academic and personal pursuits. Lastly, students develop cultural competence by appreciating the role of the arts in our heritage and cultures - individually, in community, and globally.
Whether students' interests are in the performing and/or visual arts, our dedicated and experienced faculty artists will provide expert guidance and encouragement.
