“Clara is a genius! Worth every penny” (from an online student)
The classes will advance according to the group’s needs and desires of the individuals that make it up.
There will be personalised exercises that you can prepare between sessions (optional), and others that we will do during the session.
Each student will experiment and advance based on their skills and needs. There is no pressure, the important thing about this course is to ENJOY IT, and to make it as human an experience as possible.
If the group wishes, we can continue working after the indicated date.
My goal is always:
-That you are as comfortable as possible in the situation of wanting to make others laugh, from a state of openness, innocence and vulnerability.
-That you understand how to reach that state of purity and beauty of the Clown.
-That you know the law of failure and success, and why honesty is vital.
-That you understand how humour works.
-That you accept yourself, in all your complexity and fragility, and that you ENJOY being who you are, making others laugh with your peculiarities and authenticity.
-That you create personal numbers from exploring your tendencies, strengths and weaknesses.
-That you acquire enough criteria to be able to create your own numbers in the future.
We will start from our emotional reality of the moment, and we will play with the physical reality that surrounds us, our house and the objects that are in it. We will work above all with our imagination and our feelings. How do our Clowns feel in this situation? Do you have something to tell us?
The nature of the exercises and the direction that the course takes will be guided by the group, I will see what is most appropriate at each moment, I let myself be guided by you, I ask you to trust me!
What will you need?
A stable internet connection during class.
A clown nose - if you don't have one you can make one, during the course we will.
Some big, ugly, funny, very colourful clothes, hats, wigs or accessories.
If you play an instrument you can use it if you want.
Who am I and what experience do I have guiding people on the path of the Clown?
I have been teaching for 20 years, and 14 running the Escola de Clown Cal Clown, a residential and international school in Gerona, Catalonia, in the middle of the forest.
3 years ago I started teaching and directing numbers online individually, with great success, it really works!
I have created a series of 11 videos to learn Clown, with tasks and feedback included, more info here https://escoladeclown.wixsite.com/escoladeclown/online-clown-courses
Now I am going to start teaching a group online, a new experience for me, and one that will surely show us many things that can be done, combining Clown and technology!
Do you want to discover it with me?
Dare to play and experiment with me, let's have a good time!!!

Join our Online Clown Course that is being enjoyed by students from all over the planet! From Australia to Canada, Germany to the USA, Catalonia and Spain, for a year all kinds of people are learning fast and understanding what being a Clown is really about!
You can set your own schedule and do the work at your own rhythm. Also, you will be able to read, listen, and watch all the information as many times as you wish, while in a course in person you may not even remember what the teacher said!
In Part Two of the First ClownPack you will start recording yourself both in the street and indoors, and sending this homework to Clara to get your feedback. So, aside from receiving a very detailed and fun explanation about every single component of Clowning, both spiritual and practical, you will have hours and hours of guided practice.
This unique course, created by the founder and director of the Escola de Clown de Barcelona (currently called Escola de Clown "Cal Clown"), proves that not only can you learn Clowning on your own, but that doing it online has a lot of advantages.
“If you had any doubts about whether you could learn clowning at a distance, they will disappear when you start this course” (Jon Davison, director of London Clown School and author of ‘Clown Training – a practical guide’)
After 23 years of Clowning, since I started with Phillipe Gaulier,
After 15 years teaching Clown,
After 10 years running the international Escola de Clown,
After 8 years of living with my students on the residential courses at Cal Clown....
I felt I had to bring together the knowledge accumulated over all these years,
And make it easy for people to enjoy it,
So I decided to create an Online Clown Course!
Technology at the service of Clowning - great!
Another way of making this journey,
The Journey to YOU, your Clown, your JOY, and your wonderful Shows…
Your wish to be a Clown is my guide, my strength, my FUN!
So let's connect, let's discover, let's learn, let's PLAY!
“Clara’s teaching videos and other materials are at once educational, entertaining, charming and insightful. Teacher, performer, guide and thinker, all rolled into one! Clara’s commitment to each student as an individual is exceptional.” (Jon Davison)
An immensely enriching experience in which to learn how to clown with autonomy and your own criteria, with the constant support of your teacher along the journey.
Do you have experience performing clown, but feel you sometimes lose touch with your Clown? This course is ideal for reconnecting with your innocence, stupidity and joy in your interactions with audiences and with yourself!
Not only will you receive personalised feedback on each stage of your learning, but also some homework tasks will be personalised in order to address each individual’s needs, requirements and “idiotsyncrasies”.
Enrol now and work at your own pace, from anywhere in the world!
Do you want to learn one of the professions which is most fun and most healing both for you and others?
Without having to travel for it and at your own pace?
And all this taught by a professional of many years’ experience!
On this course you will receive:
Continual tutoring from Clara Cenoz to help you learn and assimilate what a Clown is and what you should do to connect with your Clown.
Who is this course for?
For those who are curious about Clowning and haven’t yet been able to do a course.
For those who want to work on Clowning in more depth with the help of a skilled professional, having already attended some courses previously.
For those who already work with Clowning and who want to acquire more tools and a greater awareness of their work.
Who will help you?
Clara Cenoz has been a Clown since 1993 and a teacher for 15 years. She has been director of the Escola de Clown de Barcelona since 2006. During that time she has helped hundreds of students from all over the world to encounter the Clown and to create unique and personalised numbers.
¨Her generosity in class is unique, and her ability to support you at those moment when you feel uncomfortable. She knows how to communicate a lot of information without you feeling overwhelmed. She supports you a lot during the work and at the same time leaves you lots of room to create and decide for yourself. She knows how to make you feel safe. There is a lot of love in her way of teaching.” (student on the October 2016 course)
Some comments from students already enrolled on the course:
“Clara is a genius! Worth every penny” (Hernan, USA)
“I had a lot of fun during the session! Thank you so much! I flew my day on a cloud of joy. And now I have a new drive for my clowning. And clarity. And: it is super fun with you! You are a great teacher! You give me back this feeling of 'oh, that's easy'. Not every clown teacher does that with me. It's a great gift.” (Amber, Belgium)
“I am starting to do more often what I love doing and bring me fun... I am singing in public...The people’s reaction is most of the time so great!! I am feeling from the inside to outside...If I have fun everyone around me seems to be under the influence of fun, too:)
I am learning about myself, meeting myself and connecting so much more... AND IT JUST STARTED!!” (Tobi, Germany)
"The videos are amazing! Such a wonderful course!
Watching the video again and taking notes! These will help not only with clowning but with life too!” (Brenda, USA)
“Love the videos! So much fun stuff in them!!” (Javier, Spain)
“Sometimes I have a really good gig and sometimes I have some that I feel were not as good. the ones that are the best are the ones where I would actually do some of the things you talk about but without realizing it....after gigs I ask myself ‘why did this gig go better then this other gig?’ but now that I’m aware of what made them work, it’s going to help a lot! also now there is so much more stuff to try and learn!” (Brenda, USA)
"Thank you! I loved the videos I have seen so far and your support is perfect" (Tobi, Germany)
“What a great start in to the clown workshop! I was reading the pdf in a bus ... I had to laugh a lot about it… right there other people started to laugh with me, some were even crying of laughter!” (Sam, Germany)
“After watching your videos I think that the concept of innocence and joy are so important. Your way of getting to innocence, joy and the clown is an inner path. Many people will do everything to avoid this, because they have fear to change. So I think even if you are advanced, you need a lesson in innocence because it is making you fresh and unique. In our times it may be the most important task to learn, to be innocent again. If you want to be intact, no change at all, just show me the tricks to be funny, show me the gags, then you will fail to be clown.”
And from Jon Davison, “Once you’ve made some advances in your clowning, beyond the first encounter with the clown - it’s easy to forget the fundamentals: stupidity, innocence, joy – I’d highly recommend this course to anyone serious about clowning, no matter what experience you have”
And once you’ve completed Level One, you’ll be able to go onto Level Two, …. and very soon we will be creating and directing your numbers!
And if what you’re looking for is directing for your numbers you are already creating or performing, Clara offers Online Clown Directing, see here for details.
