Calling all Tweens: WIYS WRUD?

I am teaching a workshop once again this summer in the city of Glendale, AZ at the lovely fruit packing shed.

Sahuaro Ranch Park - Glendale AZ

The workshop is called: WIYS WAYD? (What is Your Story? What Are You Doing?)  It will take place from Monday June 28 through Thursday July 1. There are two sessions daily.  The morning session  is 9 a.m.- noon and then the workshop repeats from 1-4 p.m. So two options to join the fun! Ages 10-13 will get their creative juices flowing in this class. We kick it off with a brainstorming session on characters. Each participant will dream up a cast of characters, then decide what they look like, what they like to do and what adventure they will have in the story. Days two and three will be spent refining the story and illustrating the characters and the background on each page. During the final day, participants will put it all together into a bound book that they will share. Class takes place in the Main Room of the Fruit Packing Shed at Sahuaro Ranch, 9802 N. 59th Ave. The workshops, sponsored by the Glendale Library and Arts Department
