Storyscapes – Original Character Creations with Elaine Lin
March 14 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Come join Nutrien Wonderhub and local artist/storyteller, Elaine Lin, to learn how to create original characters based on images and objects. Participants will get to design characters based on an image/object. They will be able to draw their character and give them an original look, story, personality and theme.
Elaine Lin graduated from the University of Saskatchewan majoring in Studio Art. Along with her degree, she has completed courses in Theatre Design and Practical Art. She loves drawing, taking photos and crafting and values being able to express her thoughts through various media. She understands that art is a channel for youth to express their ideas and hopes to inspire them to do so.
StoryScapes is a nine-session program developed by Nutrien Wonderhub to engage children ages 3-12 years through a variety of storytelling methods. The intent of this program is to inspire children to look beyond the book when learning or telling stories.
Some examples of storytelling that we are looking for, but are not limited to, are music, song, dance, spoken word, visual arts, technology and traditions. Each session, a new method of storytelling will be introduced to participants through pre-registered/drop-in sessions.
The program sessions will take place at both the museum and external community centres. This enables the museum and storytellers to offer the program throughout the community in closer neighbourhoods for participants.
All sessions are designed to present an interesting and enjoyable experience that encourage participants to be curious and creative in with their own self-expression.
