Yes, I Am a Character!
Students will create characters based upon a costume that they wear or bring to class.
In this class, students will have the opportunity to think creatively, practice some acting skills and interact with other students. Students should bring a costume to class. This can be as simple of complex as you like. The class will begin with an introduction exercise, giving us the chance to get to know each other before we get to know our characters. Next, students will have the opportunity to introduce their characters and share some facts about their character with the rest of the...
Students will learn simple improvisation skills as well as some replicable steps to character development. They will be introduced to how actors use their bodies and voices and will learn some basic ensemble and storytelling skills.
Students should bring a character costume--this could be anything that they like. It can be a favorite movie or book character or a character of their own making. Costumes can be made from things around the house--fancy clothes, parents' clothes, hats or scarves, blankets, boxes, etc. If a student plans to wear a costume that covers the face, they should not wear to class but wait and put on after introductions (and they should be able to see, speak and move safely when wearing it).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners may be physically active in this class. Please be sure they have a safe environment with room to move around, and that they are able to move safely in their costumes. Learners are encouraged to bring a water bottle to class, as we will be using our bodies and voices. If you feel your learner may require off screen supervision in order to stay safe in an active class, please have an adult close at hand for the duration of the class.
