Classes for Ages 5 – 8

Character Creation (Ages 5 - 8) - CANCELLED

In Creating Characters with Chelsea, we will spend 8 weeks creating our very own characters and short scenes. Chelsea will encourage students to use their imagination to generate brand new characters and discover how their characters can interact in short scenes. This will be interspersed with games and activities to keep their curiosity active. We will invent, create, play, and have fun!
