Lucas Penner is coming home to lead boot camps for youth and adults
Lucas Penner, a 2008 grad of Pen High, is coming back to Penticton from Toronto to lead workshops: two three-day sessions with the sole purpose of urging Penticton artists to create their own work; to bring writers, musicians, songwriters, dancers, poets and the like together to collaborate on a project; to create the ‘Left Bank’ of the Okanagan.
During his years at Pen High, as part of the last graduating class of the old Pen High building, Lucas was playing in bands, beginning to record his tunes and developing a taste for literature: he had a theatre background far inside of him, but that wasn’t to come out until later.
Artist Boot Camp is an intensive designed from all the essentials Lucas has learned from his training as an actor, musician, writer, songwriter, and most of all, what he’s learned as a collaborator in the creation of art.
Session 1 is for ages 13 –17 and is limited to 10 participants, who must all be able to commit to all 3 days of their session.
