description

Clown Artist, John LeoNimm, has been a teaching artist working in NYC senior centers for several years. He was one month into teaching clown and comedy skills to older adults at the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island, when the senior center closed due to COVID-19. While still uncertain what the closures might mean for the program, he worked fast to investigate ways to move his class online, crowd-sourcing solutions within his teaching artist community on Facebook.
