Ages 13+
Instructors: Jennifer Wai-Lan Strodl & Ibraheem Jara
Tuition: $325

Character is at the heart of every great story. This one-week writing and visual arts workshop focuses on character creation and development. Through the processes of writing and drawing, we will explore the creation of character—dreaming up characters (wild and tame) with depth, imagination, distinguishing physical traits, distinctive dialogue, opinions, beliefs, and lives of their own. Each new "persona" will be represented through a series of written narratives and visual images.
