IMPROV! The ancient and highly intellectual art of making stuff up. Learn the fundamentals of creating improvised theater, how to be a great scene partner…and there may even be some jokes, you never know! Skills learned in this class will help students as performers, but also as learners, friends, and citizens of the world. Through the work of improv, we have an opportunity to be creative, confident and playful, but also to learn how to accept ‘mistakes’ as they come and turn them into gifts.

This class meets IN-PERSON and OUTSIDE (with a spacious and well-ventilated indoor space available in case of inclement weather) at our Church Of Our Saviour Rehearsal Venue (25 Monmouth Street).

Meets from 4.00pm – 5.15pm

SHOWCASE (New this spring!)
June 17, Time TBA
The final class of the session will feature an outdoor showcase for a limited audience of family membersDetails about this showcase will be available once the session has begun.

Artbarn’s in-person classes are held outdoors whenever possible. Our indoor space is a large room with a vaulted ceiling, numerous windows and air filtration systems that meet or exceed the Brookline Public Schools’ indoor ventilation benchmark for their Hybrid Learning Plan. Our class size is limited to allow appropriate social distancing, and all students and staff are required to wear a face mask for the duration of class. Additionally, all participants must complete an online wellness check before coming to class each week.

At Artbarn, the health and safety of our actors and staff is our highest priority. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns about our space or our safety measures.

Note – due to the ever changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, this class may be moved to online instruction at any time.
