LEISURE COURSES

2 Week Fun Courses

There is a dearth of activity for adults (young or young at heart) in the San Fernando area. These leisure courses will offer an opportunity to have something fun to do, socialise and be creative. 

FILMMAKING

Creating a short film; 15-20 minutes long. Students will learn about the fundamental elements of making a movie. Then make one themselves. 

CREATIVE WRITING

In this course, writers practice the craft of poetry, story and essay writing through a process that includes workshop and revision (drafting). We discuss and use elements of craft that are particular to each genre and universal for all three. Each student will critique, not only his/her work but the work of others and assess other students' writing through workshopping. Finally, they will demonstrate thorough revision by creating a portfolio of their drafting process.
