Creative Writing and Illustration for 9-13yrs
For budding storytellers and illustrators, Chelsea O'Bryne has created a brand new class just for us at Collage Collage. Using Chelsea's lesson plans and templates, our team will guide students through several creative projects to bring our their best stories.
From Chelsea - "Every storyteller must eventually ask themselves the same
questions. What is the point of a story, why do we tell them,
and who are they for? These questions don’t need to be answered
in the way answers normally work. These are the kinds of
questions that are worth asking over and over again, because we
may find that as we learn and grow as artists, our answers will
change. So I encourage you to keep these questions in mind, and
collect lots of different answers for them the same way you’d
collect unique seashells. They are all useful"
"A note on drawing: while we will be drawing a lot in this class,
the point of these drawings is not to look good. We are using
drawing and words as storytelling tools. The IDEA behind the
drawing is what matters here, not how realistic or polished it
looks. If you come up with an amazing idea for a drawing that
you’d like to turn into an incredible painting that takes you 30
hours to paint, keep it in your sketchbook and revisit it later!"
