Creative Spirit: Creating stories quickly 

 

The goal of this workshop is to challenge the participants to think quickly and creatively in a short period of time. Simple techniques, inexpensive props and one's imagination for quick creative thinking will be used and needed to construct a story that has never been told, written, read or presented orally.

Past, Present, Write To the Future

 

The workshop will focus on oral history and the importance of stories that have been passed down from generation to generation.  Participants will research, interview or collect family history and stories to preserve for the future. The writer will be challenged to use several art forms before presenting their story.
