Tigermen, July 8 - 12: Papermaking and Creative Storytelling

225.00

Ages 5 - 12

In this creative storytelling workshop, our young authors and illustrators create their own books from start to finish - including making their own paper! Learn how to create unique, pressed paper using recycled materials. Students create illustrated storybooks, graphic novels, pop-up books, chapter books, movie posters, or a unique “storytelling” art piece. They will explore a variety of mediums to illustrate their stories - watercolors, oil pastels, collage techniques, acrylic paint, colored pencil and more. Stories can follow a traditional plot format (beginning, middle, end, protagonist, antagonist), or students may choose an experimental storytelling approach. Workshop includes several visits by local guest authors and illustrators. Students host a Friday Book Reading for family and friends.
