27 Dec Visual Storytelling 101 (Youth) Timelines: 3a: Upcoming Writing Workshops, 3f: Youth Writing Workshops
Sometimes words are enough, but sometimes stories need something MORE. Visual storytelling is the art of weaving together both words and pictures—found photographs, maps, drawings, objects—to create the fullest story you can. In this workshop you’ll learn all about visual storytelling, from artists in the field, to the research process, to available resources and tools. You’ll also start creating a visual story of your own!
