Course details

Brief Description

Did you enjoy playing games as a kid? Do you like quizzes, reading, and meeting new people? How would you like to do all of the above in a new class starting this September?

In this class, you’ll learn to think in entirely new ways, test your observation skills, and have a lot of fun! This class is all about looking, listening, and reacting to what others do in a playful, safe environment. This is drama, but not in the traditional sense—no scripts, just pure imagination. It will challenge your observation skills, encourage you to think creatively, and help you make new friends along the way. If you need some fun in your life and want to improve your memory while getting a bit of exercise (mainly from laughing), come and join this class!

Previous Experience and Knowledge Needed?

No experience necessary. Just an interest in doing something fun!

How you will learn:

  • ‘Looking’ games – testing your observation skills, in a group.
  • Using props, the room and your imagination to answer questions
  • Working in groups or pairs
  • Taking part in treasure hunts, and other thought provoking games
  • Using your imagination
  • Using colour, words and your memory as you interact with others
  • Improvisation is key!

Extra costs on the course for example textbook, materials or equipment

None! You just need to bring yourself and your imagination!

On completion of this course, what might your next steps be?

A follow-on course focusing on word association games.
