Sketch Lab 101: Beginning Sketch Writing
Mondays 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm - Class begins on March 25th
8 Weeks for ONLY $175 (Save $10 if you register by March 20th!)


This class will focus on taking your funny ideas, goofy characters and crazy "what ifs?" and turning them into sketches that are entertaining, thought provoking and funny. Through a series of exercises, demonstrations and weekly homework assignments that Tom Booker developed during the seven years that he taught sketch writing at The Second City Training Center, you will emerge from this class with a knowledge of the different types of sketches used most often in sketch writing, the ability to get your point of view across to the world in a unique and humorous way, and a portfolio of your work. No previous writing experience is necessary. Students only need to possess a willingness to learn.

This class is limited to 10 students.

Sketch Lab 201: Intermediate Sketch Writing
Tuesdays 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm - Class begins on March 26th
8 Weeks for ONLY $175 (Save $10 if you register by March 20th!)

This class will build on the lessons learned in Sketch Lab 101 as we delve into the world of writing satire, using music in our sketches,
writing for short films and messing with the perceived and expected form of sketch writing. Students will be given weekly homework assignments as well as in class writing assignments and rewriting assignments throughout this course.

Students are required to take Sketch Lab 101 before being allowed to enroll in Sketch Lab 201. This class is limited to 10 students.
