My Unique Story: Visual and Verbal Storytelling
Learn creative techniques in art and writing to use to tell stories.
Each piece of art will reflect different points in your life and will include a Life Map collage, mixed media quote cards, and a mixed media accordion book. Using writing prompts and engaging in writing exercises, we will also craft poems. Each participant will share a 3-5 minute poem on the last day.
All supplies included. Light snacks will be available. Students are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
