Sketch 201 w/ Nick Armstrong (Sun 3/28 – Sun 4/18)

In this class students will build upon what they leaned in Sketch 101, but this time you’ll write full character sketches and also co-write sketches with classmates and learn how to work with others as you write. You’ll also learn the process of a co-write. This class will also dig deeper on how to prep for a sketch from idea to completion. Students will come out of this class with polished sketches ready to be performed. The goal is to write sketches that can be performed online and/or onstage. We will also delve further into the writers room aspect, working together in a collaborative nature to make the best product possible. From beat sheet to sketch we will get it from a fun idea to a full blown sketch.

Prerequisites:  Sketch 101 or instructor approval.
