Fall 2020 Adaptive Version
Building on a successful hybrid model of online and in-person, socially distant sessions piloted in our Summer Camp, the Festival’s teaching team will engage young artists in a 10-week series of standalone projects. Each Monday students will receive a video lesson with an assignment for the week that they can complete on their own time. On Wednesdays at 5:30 there will be a group Zoom call where the students will share some of their work from the assignment and receive feedback. On Fridays the students will meet in person in a space that allows ample social distancing, such as Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park, to share their work with the instructor and the rest of the group. This hybrid model is designed to ensure safety while helping students find ways of engaging with Shakespeare that best suit their interests and learning style. This will include one outing to a socially distant theatrical production.
In January we will reassess where the program is most succeeding and decide how the second semester will proceed.
