Started three years ago as the brilliant vision of Ryan Elisabeth Reid and the Sprat Artistic Ensemble, Sprat Classes are unique to Las Vegas and greatly impact the lives of those involved by connecting teens and seniors through various artistic subjects and mediums. Supported by the Outside Agency Grant and the Vitality Arts Grant, Sprat Classes are art and theatre workshops for seniors and teens in the Las Vegas valley facilitated by teaching artists from the cast and crew of “Henri”. The monthly classes focus on creating dynamic intergenerational interactions, communication and new experiences to further engagement of the community.
