West Loop Classes-Grades 6 to 8

Chicago Children’s Theatre’s classes for students in Grades 6-8 challenge young artists to tell stories from their own experiences and from the world around them. In classes exploring multimedia, film, devising, and advanced acting, young artists build artistic and life-learning skills to engage with art, media, and their world thoughtfully and critically.
