We have faced incredible challenges in this past year and the adapting we've asked of kids has been next level. As such, NOVA is offering a writing class for kids: Isolation During a Pandemic: Kids Speak! Our youth have encountered shifting from in-person to distance learning, not being able to see their friends, and having to wear masks. It's been A LOT. How do they feel about it? What has been their experience? What have the learned? 

This is an opportunity for kids (ages 6-18) to explore their time during COVID and release and express all that they've been going through. Along with getting to tell us how their lives have changed this year, they will also learn valuable writing skills like journaling, narrative, and script writing. 

The class will be taught virtually by DeLaney Hardy. The class starts January 13, 2021, at 5:30pm, meeting each Wednesday. The final performance date is April 21.
