To Prepare

Come to the workshops with a show in mind. It could be something you are currently working on, a show you saw recently, or a piece you would love to do one day. This workshop is structured like a case-study, so you’ll have experience applying the principles and the opportunity to give and receive peer feedback on your work.

Participants will need paper and a pen/pencil for exercises. You are also welcome to bring a laptop if that is your preference for note-taking—but you will still need paper and a writing utensil!
