Exploring Visual Stories with Ariel Aberg-Riger (Hybrid)

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 youth writing workshop we’ll read and get inspired by the work of great visual storytellers, and then create our own fully visual collaborative story.

This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18, and limited to 10 in-person participants with the option to join virtually.

  • COVID SAFETY: We’ll be following social distancing protocol, taking temperatures, and providing masks and sanitizer as needed.
  • ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: If you have any questions/issues accessing any of these opportunities, please let us know and we will work with you to make sure you can participate.
