In this 2-hour workshop, Elaine will discuss the art and science of impersonation: identifying a person to copy, mastering the idiosyncrasies that make them so funny, and crafting situations, stories, and complementary characters to bring your character to life. She will then work with attendees on their own characters, providing them with hands on instruction and advice that they can apply directly to their next project.
Limited to 20 students. Students on wait list will be given advance notice of future classes.
