Awakening Shakespeare: Homeschool Edition
Dates: 11/11-12/16, no class 11/25
Day and Time: Wednesdays, 10:00am-11:30am
Diving into Shakespeare can be daunting. This class is designed to kinesthetically connect homeschool students with the characters and stories found in Shakespeare's classic plays. Students will gain confidence as they explore the language and history of Elizabethan England and the work of the Bard himself. Though no prior experience with Shakespeare is necessary for this class, the seasoned bard-lover will make new discoveries as they embody and experiment with Shakespearean text, classic stories, and exciting performance techniques.
Young Artists are using online platforms such as Zoom and Google Classroom, but will also be challenged to take their work off the screen and into the real world.
