Devising Your Path as an Artist

taught by Christopher Beaulieu 

Artistry requires creative ownership—caring deeply and taking personal responsibility—for why, how, and what you put into the world. Actively define your artistic practice through personal identity, intention, and it’s impact. Utilizing Shakespeare as a creative playground, we’ll explore making space for individual interpretation and relevance through ferocious play, mindfulness, and ensemble techniques. The only way to make unique art is to own what makes you unique. Active class— Lets Play!

A limited number of $175 pre-registrations are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only 8 will be sold – registrants must have been invited by Acorn to attend at this special rate
