A Pipeline eNewsletter advertising sponsor, The Second City Training Center offers classes for adults and youths & teens (ages 1-18), and is now accepting registrations for January 2010. No prior experience needed, just a desire to laugh and to learn, and to explore your creative side in the company of others while honing presentation, speaking, and writing skills. Pop by Pipers Alley at 1608 N Wells or call 312-664-3959 to learn more. Does someone in your life need a push to get started, or do you just need to find a creative way to get them out of your hair for a few hours each week? Gift certificates aka "The Gift of Laughter" are available, too.
Pictured are students in the Writing 5 program. They've been together for almost a year now. (Full disclosure: I am one of them, too, but I am on the floor taking the photo.) Captured on video is our awesome teacher, Joe Janes. When he's not teaching or acting in or directing shows he's proving that there's no such thing as Writer's Block and posting a sketch each day to the 365 Sketches blog.
