WEEK 1: Character Acting 1

Welcome to Character Acting 1!
Please have a look at the outline for the course and familiarize yourself with the academic policies.

We're going to do a ton of drawing, acting, fighting (!), and other fun stuff in this class. Please dress for action & always bring your drawing materials. Video analysis is a large part of this course. Bring a camera & tripod if you have one.

A major focus of a course called "Character Acting" is, obviously, acting...
We'll do a lot of improv to shake off our shyness and progress to detailed acting scenes by the end of the course.

For further study, try drop-in Improv Acting at The Black Swan ( or take a course at Impatient Theatre or Second City.  There are open figure drawing classes nearly every day of the week in Toronto, such as at the Gladstone Hotel, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto School of Art, and The Academy of Art.

Keep records of everything you do that supports this course -- it will all become useful for your portfolio.
