Creating a Passion Piece with Steve Sneed
Creating a Passion Piece with Steve Sneed

Teaching artist Steve Sneed walks you through the creative development of an idea into the recitation of an original poem or monologue for an audience. This lesson comes with an "assignment" (complete with benchmarks) to write about something you stand for, something you're passionate about, and includes exercises and tips on observation, feedback, and critique. This lesson is great for learners of all ages, particularly youth grades 9-12.

The Creative Advantage Online Arts video series is created by The Creative Advantage in collaboration with teaching artists and organizations on our Community Arts Partner Roster, Seattle Public Schools, and production partners NFFTY / The Talented Youth, NW Film Forum, and Reel Grrls Pro. The Creative Advantage is a city-wide initiative to establish equitable access to arts education for each and every public school student, made possible through a public-private partnership with Seattle Public Schools, the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, the Seattle Foundation, and 100+ community arts partners and teaching artists.
