Good art comes from being brave enough to share your truths in your work. How do you do that? How do you get in touch with your truth? How do you translate that into creativity? In this class, we explore the secrets that help students tell their own stories. Using improvisation techniques, we will talk about how to make work/art/creative things that are personal and offer a peek into a unique collaborative process, analyzing a song from the writer's point of view and identifying points of personal/emotional connection, while drawing out stories of personal experience. This class will help students create their own work that is stronger, more exciting, more memorable and more uniquely your own. Who knows? What you discover could lead you to create the next Dear Evan Hansen!
