Workshop presented by ArTEIER
Bella Young and Emma Skalicky are sharing with you their introductory storytelling workshop exploring creative writing and theatre performance skills through learning the recipe to make a story while encouraging creative expression through physical, verbal and written means delivered in energetic and engaging ways.
Bella Young and Emma Skalicky will be offering the opportunity for families to engage in storytelling workshops aimed as an introduction to creative writing and theatre performance skills.
Centred around exploring the recipe for a story – including ingredients and method – we will teach a combination of theatre, storytelling and visual art skills online.
Engaging in a face2face setting, we will encourage creative expression through physical, verbal and written means in a fun, energetic and engaging way. Families will collaborate in writing and/or drawing and performing their own stories or adventure with us together to create characters.
By participants exploring their own voices and stories, the workshop aims to promote confidence, teamwork, communication, imagination and self expression in a safe and supportive creative environment, facilitated by trained and experienced theatre makers and teaching artists, Bella & Emma!
