First Act! is an all new theater coaching class that teaches kids acting, character development, stage management and design. Participants will participate in warm up activities, acting games, improv, and even play analysis.  They will learn to use their "stage voice" to project, and their body language to build character. Students will perform a short, 5-10 minute play on the last day of the 6 week session for parents and friends. This class will help the outgoing child focus their energies and the shy child to come out of their shell.

Egg Tempera Painting

This should be a masterclass - but we've opened the door to everyone! Award-winning watercolor artist, Gary Brooks, will teach you to make and use the oldest and most traditional of painting mediums - egg tempera. Many beautiful paintings from the Middle Ages and Renaissance were done in egg tempera - which is a brilliant, semi-translucent paint medium that dries almost instantly.  Learn how to best manipulate this unique medium. Students complete a small egg tempera sample in the workshop.
