The Stage is Your Canvas: Painting a Picture with Characterization and Blocking

An artist's goal is to tell a story. Like a painter with palate, brushes, and canvas, the actor and director create pictures on stage through blocking, character development, and relationships that can connect the audience with a color wheel of emotions. Life is never as simple as black and white! Participants will use colors and shapes to reflect how a character would react to others and/or to the situations in which they find themselves.
