Rockland — On Thursday, Oct. 22, and back by popular demand, the Farnsworth Art Museum hosts an online theatrical-improvisation class, led by local actor Ryan Jackson. Entitled “Thinking Outside The Frame: An Improv Introduction," the class will take place on Zoom, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Jackson is back once again to expand your minds and fill your bellies with laughter. Participants will engage in various improvisation games and prompts to improve their skills in storytelling, conversation, and interacting with others. Students will become experts on subjects they didn’t know about before, and embrace their inner fool. Beginners and old pros alike are invited to come and have some fun!

Born and raised in Rockland, Jackson is a graduate of the University of Maine with a bachelor’s degree in Theatre. For the past 20 years, Jackson has been working both locally and professionally in Midcoast Maine, as well as other parts of New England. He is an Employee Owner at Rock City Cafe, as well as Site Coordinator for After School Programming at Oceanside Middle School.

The fee for this program is $30; $25 for Farnsworth members. To register for this program, or for more information, please visit
