Get SmART! Workshop » The Art of Screenwriting

Come learn the art of screenwriting with professional writer and instructor Dr. Russell Leigh Sharman at Crystal Bridges. Join Sharman for a one-day, intensive workshop that covers the basics of screenwriting and advanced topics, including building compelling characters, the importance of a clear narrative and dramatizing themes. The hands-on workshop includes writing exercises and professional advice, such as what to do after a screenplay is written.

Sharman is a writer, filmmaker and anthropologist who has written for various studios and production companies, including Warner Bros., Fox, Disney, MRC, DeLine Pictures, 21 Laps, Participant Media, Montecito Pictures, Original Media, Dark Horse Entertainment, Strange Weather and Real FX. He is the writer-director of “Apartment 4E,” a feature adaptation of his stage play. He has been involved in a multitude of short films and documentaries.

Crystal Bridges is hosting the workshop, which is part of the Arkansas Arts Council’s GetSmART! Learning Series. The learning series provides affordable, art-related professional development, training and networking opportunities to Arkansans statewide.
