Guest experts join Fifth House Ensemble on campus for in-person or Skype workshops, bringing a diverse range of vision and experience to support these two weeks of artistic discovery. Our guest experts have included graphic artists, marketing executives, theatre directors and renowned composers, leading interactive workshops that will help you to redefine your artistic vision.
