This past weekend I took Holly to a Young Authors Workshop at the PBS studios. She is planning to enter their young authors contest this year and has been creating a book idea in her head. Well, they were offering a free workshop for children in Kindergarten through Third Grade on how to incorporate art and characters into your stories.
This workshop was GREAT!
They had a host from Live Paint! out of Seattle who worked the kids through numerous story telling activities in which she was fantastic! She got the kids up and participating in very creative and silly ways. To finish the kids all created a mask of a character they shared about.
This workshop was amazing and we are so glad that we went, Holly had a great time and is feeling very inspired for her story now. Great Job PBS!
