Performance courses at the Museum School help you develop your own voice in creating live, time-based art. Our focus is on solo work based in the visual, but we also encourage you to engage in an interdisciplinary practice incorporating other media.
Courses familiarize you with a range of approaches to developing original performance work, improve your technical production skills and introduce you to the theories and history of performance. We encourage you to experiment with different performance techniques and performance structures, and to examine the relationship between audience and artist.
Each year we host visits from internationally known performance artists who perform, give artist talks and teach intensive workshops.
