Project Description

In this residency students will explore the craft of storymaking — they will develop characters and contexts in narrative to examine conflicts, tension, resolution and growth. Students will also practice embodiment and drawing skills to depict their characters with empathetic features in comics and illustration forms.
Integrated with history/social studies curriculum, this residency can engage creative and critical thinking about the lived experiences of individuals through history and place. Integrated with science and technical subjects, this residency can support student immersion in subject through embodiment and characterization.
