Huntington @ HomeSchool

Continuing creative expression and education from the comfort of your own home.

Created by the Huntington Theatre Company's Education Department Huntington @ HomeSchool is a collection of FREE online classes led by Huntington staff and artisans. Classes cover everything from Shakespeare, acting, directing, lighting design, color theory, and more! 

Huntington @ HomeSchool courses are available to anyone interested – you don’t have to live in Boston or Massachusetts – you only need an interest in the topic being covered. Anyone and everyone is welcome to register and these public classes are meant to be enjoyed by all ages! We also have additional resources for teachers and educators. 

Courses will be offered for free via Zoom or Facebook Live (course platform is indicated in each description). To sign-up, fill out the Google form and we will email you the log-in information. Classes offered via Facebook live will be posted on the Huntington Theatre Company Facebook page, and do not require a sign up. All classes need a minimum of five (5) participants to run. Class registrations will close at 11:59pm the day before the class is being offered.


The Education Department is committed to using our platform to better amplify artists of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Community.

To accomplish this, the Education Department is working to better center the BIPOC community in our Huntington@HomeSchool curriculum. Please click here for more information, including additional resources for education and informed action.

FOR TEACHERS:

The Huntington Theatre Company's Education Department recognizes the challenges of remote learning, as all schools across the Commonwealth have closed due to Coronavirus. We have curated a collection of classes and workshops that our staff and staff across the Huntington are willing to teach remotely, designed to last between 30 and 60 minutes. 
 

Guest Lectures and Teacher Trainings are on summer vacation - we'll resume these offerings in a few months, once school is back in session.
