Barton Movement in collaboration with Daniel Watts presents:


A Master Class for Creative Artists


Daniel J. Watts, actor/dancer/activist/poet/host on the stage, in film and in television, is offering a workshop to help you get and generate more work. Sound interesting? Let’s explain.

The secret to getting more work is to create more work.

This workshop calls on you to ask yourself: Who are you? What kind of artist are you? Are you doing the kind of work you want to be doing? Why not? What kind of work do you want to be doing? 

We will be exploring these questions in an intimate, SAFE studio classroom setting through introspection, improvisational games, general discussion/debate and a considerable amount of writing. By the end of this class each participant will have gained a greater knowledge of self and a further developed personal responsibility to create art, not only as a means to flourish, but to also make a positive change in his or her community and beyond.

Daniel Watts has appeared in eight Broadway shows, including the smash hit Hamilton, Memphis, and In The Heights. He has also appeared on several TV shows, recurring on NBC’s Blindspot and HBO’s Vinyl. Besides his stage and TV work, Watts created his own production company, called WattsWords Productions. He also started his own spoken word/stroytelling experience called Dz The Jam, which has sold out the historic Webster Hall in New York City and is currently in development to be a televised special.

Watts currently hosts two live events at the W Hotel in Hollywood. He has been an adjunct professor for NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ New Studio on Broadway, teaching the same type of work that you will see in his workshop. Watts says he “without a doubt, attribute(s) this wealth of work not only to (his) continued effort to create (his) own work,” but knowing WHO HE IS as an artist.
