Our goal is to develop a group of young, interdisciplinary artists who will form the core of our Young Artists Initiative and continue to work with us by championing and cultivating the humanities in their communities. We strive to help them develop as artists and thinking, creative human beings that are skilled at expressing their unique experiences of the world around them.

We will achieve this goal through intensive training that will include writing, voice &

speech, text analysis, team building, and constructive critique. We will offer them the

tools to connect physical and vocal performance. Mastery of these skills will provide them with a cohesive communication tool and with a structured way of working that

is applicable to the creation of interdisciplinary art.

The Details

We will accept a maximum of twelve (12) young artists between the ages of 14 and 18. Younger applicants may be considered based on qualifications.

The workshop will meet twice weekly 3:45 - 6PM
