Kids Workshops

Performance Poetry (Grades 4-9)
Unlike traditional poetry, performance poetry pieces demand to be brought to life through vocal inflection and body language. Find your voice at this daylong session during which you will explore the works of mentor poets, brainstorm ideas, draft poems, and then perform them with a focus on expression and gesture. Note: Bring a bagged lunch. (CED 341 701)
Instructor: Sarah Ada

Through a crash course in understanding graphics, writing prompts, storyboards, artwork, editing and publication, you will create your own image-driven stories and work towards discovering your voice as you explore the wonderful world of comics.
