Clowning brings out the funny in all of us.
Through a series of easy games, discover your clowning moment.
Play, noses, and funny hats are all you need to find the funny in you.
An added test will be a video of you in action. Two hours of prep and one hour of experimental video (done by the concurrent class, Hands-on Filmmaking) and you will see how funny you too can be.
Students should bring a USB stick with at least one gigabyte of free space if they wish to take their work home.
No experience necessary.

�Fiona knows how to motivate and create the necessary environment.�
�She is a clown. She is encouraging. She is fun.�
