Drama I: Drama Portfolio - Kolbe Academy

Drama I: Drama Portfolio

Kolbe Academy’s Drama Portfolio Course offers a curriculum that teaches students key skills in the dramatic arts, while developing individual portfolios of work. These versatile portfolios will feature samples from various dramatic fields, including acting, design, playwriting, and production. Lectures will also be given on drama history for students to learn about key figures whose work crafted theater as we know it today. The Drama Portfolio course must be completed before students take the Advanced Dramatic Arts course.
