Actor’s Art Theatre offers private classes and workshops in acting technique, script analysis, directing, play and solo show development. Instructor Jolene Adams offers a step-by-step system she’s developed inspired by Stanislavsky and Meisner. Techniques are taught to help focus attention, affect emotional states and increase creativity and spontaneity. There is also a practical emphasis on applying technique lessons in professional working conditions. When possible Performance Labs are produced and film shoots are simulated to help the artist practice their craft in front of an audience or in front of the camera.

Classes are taught in small groups and one-on-one. Adams encourages actors to learn their craft through writing, directing and performance. Clients have opportunities to develop and perform original character material, monologues, and scenes. All Classes and Interviews are held at Actors Art Theatre, 6128 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles.
