At Grove School, we hope that creativity is a part of our campus’ culture and one of our goals is for art to be everywhere. In addition to sculptures that can be found throughout the campus, the school also offers students the opportunity to take a range of electives in the Fine Arts.
Students can also participate in after-school clubs that are geared towards painting, photography, and other artistic activities. And in addition to the school’s annual Evening of the Arts, the school presents Art Fairs for the entire community to attend, in which the work of students is showcased and on display. We want all of our students to explore the arts – for some, this can be a creative outlet, and for others it can be essential therapy. Our Arts program is proud to present students with so many options.
Screenwriting 2 – Writing a feature-length Screenplay
Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12
Students will continue to develop an understanding of character development, act breaks, and various storytelling devices. Students will learn how to “sell” both their ideas and their material. They will learn how to “pitch” projects and how to write material “on spec.” The goal for this course is that each student is able to complete a feature-length screenplay based on an original idea. This will give them not only invaluable experience, but also a finished “writing sample” that they could register with the WGA and use throughout their lives as a means to gain representation or a foot in the door to the industry.
