CLASSES & workshops

Our goal is to grow our student’s creativity by encouraging artistic aspirations through a fresh and proficient learning environment.






As we navigate this time together, Elm Street is passionate about connecting through creativity and arts. That is why we have developed three NEW classes to engage our community online–and they are made to be digital, from the comfort of your own home!

Classes meet weekly and vary in price based on term length and material. Workshops meet once and are $35.00.

There is a non-refundable fee (included in education fees) if canceled any time after registering. There is a 24-hour “grace period” to cancel with full refund prior to a class or workshop starting.

There will be no refund of any portion of the class fee once a class or workshop has begun.

Classes and workshops are taught by trained instructors who introduce children, teens, and adults to the exciting world of the arts, both performing and visual. Through a varied curriculum, students explore the craft of acting, singing, dancing, improvisation, drawing, and/or portfolio development and learn the discipline of the arts as they develop their unique creative voices. Elm Street’s classes and workshops are designed to meet students where they are, regardless of prior experience or skill level.

Elm Street’s Class & Workshop Objectives:
To help students learn skills and build self-confidence.
To help students better understand their role in their craft to build self-reliance.
To encourage students to become participants within local art organizations.
To help students learn to appreciate themselves and others.
To encourage students to learn cooperation and collaboration skills to work with others.
To offer students the opportunity to build relationships with others and create a connection through art.

Teaching vibrancy

Elm Street Cultural Arts is proud to offer classes (for both adults and children) that provide training in theatre, performance arts, and visual arts.

We’ve extended our outreach by giving schools opportunities to creatively participate in programming such as RepTouR – a trained group of actors that perform for over 10,000 students every year.

Your mission, become an agent by infiltrating the enemy base (H.O.U.S.E.) and determine their secrets for world domination. Each week is a new mission: cracking codes, creating disguises, and solving puzzles–and each class time is dedicated to “reporting” your findings to the Head ESA Agent and determining your next mission or clues. By the end of the 6 weeks, your agent will have learned the basic skills to apply to acting through creative methods. Agent supply kits will be made available on the Friday before class for pick-up or delivery (extra fees for shipping).

Join us for a five week virtual class all about clay! Two projects are planned for you specifically to learn the basics of clay construction.  We will have plenty of time for questions and answers and learning about each other and clay! Both projects will be fired and glazed and be ready for pick up 2-3 weeks after the final class.
Digital ceramic classes are taught by Woodstock’s own–Betsy Khuri.

Through the medium of oil painting, Chase King teaches expressive, organic, and improvisational painting techniques. In addition, students can expect demonstrations, explanations, encouragement, individual instruction, and a more meaningful understanding and appreciation for creativity and self-expression through visual art.

Ready for an energetic, fun way to learn improv? Over the course of the program teens will learn and continue to improve their understanding of the rules of improv acting and the fun behind improv games. Students will also receive instruction from experienced iThink Improv Troupe members and improvisers.

This class will work on building characters and relationships. In this 8-week class, students will focus on accessing emotions in-the-moment, building characters and relationships on emotional perspectives, and using patterns of emotional behaviors to drive scenes forward. Entrance of Level 2 class requires completion of Level 1 and/or previous experience along with director approval of admittance. Class ends with a graduation show.
