Illustrated Short Story Workshop It Starts with an Image

Author and artist Janine Kimmel leads this exciting, enchanted and imaginative workshop to help children create their own illustrated short story. During an imaginary tour through the large scrolls of her vibrant ‘doorway art’, from her award winning book, The Magic Gown, children will learn how an image can create the beginning of a story, then will imagine and create their own story using a six-page booklet created by the author. (ages 7 & up)
