Kids of all ages are invited to clown around this summer at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.
For six weeks, students between the ags of 10-18 years will learn the history of movement and clowning with opportunities to learn hands-on skills such as juggling, balloon sculpture, mime and skit production.
Each student will also develop their own clown character and create a costume with makeup to present their work at a special end of course performance.
Classes run from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. beginning June 5 and ending with a graduation and performance later in the summer.
Instructed by Doug Egge, award-winning mime and juggler.
