Don Stewart* - Actor
A visceral connection to the text and an authentic relationship – with self and others – is the basis of the journeyman work in my classroom. My goal is to instill fundamental skills – creating character; having a sense of dramatic action; being able to recognize and portray conflict; and understanding the power behind dramatic language – in a practical and nurturing environment that gives the artist room and permission to fail.
I was trained in a conservatory environment and relish teaching in that world. I love the opportunity to collaborate with my colleagues in seeking holistic solutions for our students helping them deepen and unleash their art into action.
