Synopsis: 

From the day we're hatched to the day we spread our wings and fly on our own, there are requisite, riotous rites of passage that must be experienced. This collection of humorous scenes explores the innocent squawk of infancy, the terrible twos, the treacherous teens, and everything in between.

 

There are survival courses on how to handle any kind of baby-sitter - from the perfect to the perfectly insane. There are tactics for dealing with those who endeavor to shape, stretch and warp our minds and bodies - like gym teachers, substitute teachers, and those cafeteria culinary queens, the "Little Lunch Ladies." From the angst of adolescence and part-time jobs to the dangers of driver's ed. and dealing with the dreaded kid sister, this is a hilarious, high-flying adventure. Whether you're a feather short of adulthood or have a bird's-eye view of growing up, this play soars with laughter.

You will have fun creating your own vision photo fun workshop at the HCA. A model will be in the class wearing fun costumes. We will be experimenting with lights and shadows. There will also be plenty of helpful guidance and suggestions to enhance your passion for artful photography. At the end of the workshop, children will email their favorite picture to the instructor for a take home photograph! Photographs can be picked up at the HCA, approximately one week after the workshop.

Instructor: Chelsea Bradway. An Iphone or other picture-taking equipment is required. Space is limited for on-site programs in order to be compliant with the Massachusetts guidelines for gatherings. The HCA is open to offering students who do not wish to take an on-site class (or if the class is full) the opportunity to take a parallel class virtually from the comfort of their home. Please reach out to us to request a virtual connection to any on-site class by emailing us at info@hopartscenter.org.
