In this class, students will have the opportunity to create their own short play. We will begin by developing characters and a story with input from all students. Students will then be able to create costumes, find props, sounds, and create a backdrop for their portion of the play. All learners will be working together and have individual responsibilities as well. This class will be driven by student ideas and I will be a moderator and coach. The class times will be our touchstone and...
Learners will be able to practice basic acting, improv, and writing skills. They will also explore character development, costume, set and sound design.
Students will need to spend some time creating costumes, props, set pieces and/or recording sound outside of class. How long this takes and how much learners put into it will be a personal decision on their part.
When attending class, students should wear clothes that are comfortable to move in and may also choose to have a bottle of water handy. They should also have paper and pen/pencils. Learners will be developing costumes, finding props, creating sound effects and making a backdrop or other set pieces. They should be able to do these things with items found around the house. These items may include boxes, paint, crayons, markers, glue, stapler, fabric and various existing objects and pieces of clothing. If students have the know-how and prefer to use digital props and backgrounds this is perfectly fine as well. They may use a cellphone, iPod, or other devise for recording and playing sound effects.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
