The Fine Arts Association
Program

Theatre students of all ages explore and develop their acting skills through a variety of immersive, hands-on theatre classes designed for learning and fun in The Fine Arts Association’s Theatre Program

For each age level, we offer beginning, intermediate, and advanced level classes depending on the student’s needs and ability. Basic techniques include, but are not limited to: vocal projection, diction, memorization, and blocking (stage placement). 

In advanced classes students will hone their craft, while becoming more comfortable with character choices and development, script analysis, stage presence, and line delivery. Students with prior training from outside organizations will meet with faculty to determine placement in various programs.
