I've been studying drama for 15 years, including completing a Bachelor of Arts, Majoring in Theatre Studies from York University in Toronto, Canada. I've been teaching drama and working with drama students for 5+ years. I've also built sets and performed in several productions including Into the Woods, a Midsummer Night's Dream and several original devised theatre productions. I've also worked as a dramaturg helping playwrights develop their scripts for stage and podcast productions.

Students are encouraged to take notes throughout the class and should use whichever format they are most comfortable with to do so. Students are also encouraged to bring paper, a pencil, an eraser, pencil crayons, paint and/or markers to complete our in-class activity. They may also use a digital drawing program instead if they prefer.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
