Seed is excited to partner with the Garner Area Homeschoolers for another year of classes! All classes will meet at First Baptist Church in Garner Building 4. This year’s programming includes:
SEED HISTORY SEEKERS
This 4-part class that explores NC History through writing, acting, character and production techniques. As members of the Tarheel Junior Historian Society, this year’s focus will be on NC Playwrights and each class will be centered around a “History in Action”, wrtiting, and design projects that will be submitted for the annual TJHS convention at the NC Museum of History Museum. 4th -12th grade students participating in any of the four classes are eligible for participation. *Registration is currently open for winter/spring classes. ($115/class/semester) Monday Seed History Seekers classes include:
- PLAYWRITING (Aug.13-Dec.10, 10-11 am)
After exploring the topics and techniques of some of our exceptional NC playwrights, students will write their own scenes and monologues based on local biographies and events.

Focusing on research, imagery, vocal and physical techniques this class will prepare young actors to create believable and truthful characters.
