Chris Carwithen
Sunday, October 25, 2020


Take inspiration from the pandemic in which we’re living as you learn to tell your story.

Company of Fools actor Chris Carwithen will lead a two-day workshop titled “Creating Through Crisis: Crafting Your Story in the Time of Pandemic” on Nov. 2 and 9 at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey.

The workshop, organized by the Sun Valley Museum of Art, will have participants share a personal experience during this time of worldwide disruption through the art of performance.

They will start with a monologue writing exercise, then perform that monologue before the class.

Carwithen made his 2012 Liberty Theatre debut in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” He has played in a number of COF productions since, including “A Year with Frog and Told,” “Almost, Maine,” and “Grey Gardens.” A theatre arts graduate from Southern Oregon University, he has been involved with a number of professional companies, including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

The workshop runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 2 and 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 9. It costs $75 for SVMoA members and $85 for nonmembers. To reserve a space, visit or 208-726-9491.


Sun Valley Museum of Art will also offer a one-day adult writing class with local author Sarah Sentilles titled “A Thousand Words—Guided Writing About the Art You See.”

The class will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4 at The Museum in Ketchum.

The class will offer students creative writing exercises as they experiment with new ways of viewing art and playing with language.

Sentilles has authored several books, including “Draw Your Weapons,” which won the 2018 PEN Award for Creative Nonfiction.

The class costs $10 for SVMoA members and $12 for nonmembers. To reserve a spot, visit or call 208-726-9491.
