Her first formal training was in Classical Greek Art, through the National Museum of Art in Athens, Greece. Further independent studies were undertaken in Edinburgh, London, and Florence. At The ArtsCenter she took classes with Jane Filer. She works from her imagination, and uses art as a doorway to the subconscious. Full intructor bios online at artscenterlive.org/about/instructors

Theatre What’s my purpose? Have you ever wondered what your purpose is? Do you crave waking up in the morning being filled with a sense of excitement about the day ahead? Each of us has a unique and distinct purpose; something that fills us with natural inspiration. We are all given clues to this purpose. In this session you will learn how to understand these clues through fun life purpose questions, exercises and games so that you may more fully live the life you were born to live. Anoo Brod - $24 - Thursday, 7-9pm, Jun. 15 This class is designed as a precursor to the Summer Improv Intensive Workshop, but can be taken separately as well.

Summer Improv Intensive Spend the weekend learning, playing, connecting, challenging yourself, and growing in this summer workshop! Just as language learners become fluent more easily when immersed in a foreign culture, improv students can more easily get the improv “quantum leap” they crave when they are immersed in an intensive experience that allows them to fully relax into the tools of the trade. This weekend improv retreat experience is suitable for any experience level. We will delve deeply into skills such as drawing from personal experience, noticing and building on authentic moments in the scene, and surfing mistakes to success. As an added feature, there will be a talent night on Saturday evening after the day of workshops where you can share that poem you wrote a year ago, tell a story from your life, practice an improv game, dance or sing a song – whatever best helps you to express yourself! Be prepared for a creative weekend of lots of laughter, tons of learning, and uninterrupted improv fun! Anoo Brod - $295 - Friday-Sunday, June 16-18 Friday, 7-9:15pm Saturday, 10am-9:30pm Sunday, 10:30am-4:30pm

wRITING Imagine a Children’s Book Pt. I For years you’ve dreamed of writing a children’s book. You may even have a vague story idea. But how do you turn that into a workable plot? Susie Wilde, children’s book columnist for the Raleigh News and Observer, unites 30 years of writing and reviewing experience to teach you the steps that help give your story structure. From creating original characters to developing their motivations, conflicts, and finally resolutions, this class blends hands-on exploration of children’s books with opportunities to share your writing and ideas with fellow students. Susie Wilde - $113 - Wednesday, 7-9:30pm, Jul. 12-Aug. 9

Reading Methods to address classroom issues The workshop begins as participants open boxes of newly published children’s books. Participants will examine and explore these books to discover how they satisfy curriculum needs. We will seek books that have characters of color, books that help your students with learning disabilities, STEM books and more. These and other concerns will frame a development workshop that allows teachers time to explore new books, examine their content and worth, and discuss which ones matter. Susie Wilde - $90 - Fri. 4:30-8:30pm & Sat. 9:30am-3:30pm, Jun. 2 & 3 Completion of this class is good for one CEU credit.

Family Writing Adventure: Creating an Imaginative Narrative Susie Wilde leads families on an exploration of children’s books and writing as she guides them in wondering their way into a whimsical story. This weekly class includes the basics of writing structure elements to organize a story. Together we will brainstorm elements for a collaborative story as a modeling exercise, and then families will collaborate and share their individual stories. Susie Wilde - $113 - Sunday, 2-4:30pm, Jul. 2-30 Tuition covers the cost of one parent and one child.
