While we obviously love words at Uptown Stories, some life experiences just beg for visuals to accompany them. Whether it’s a favorite vacation, birthday party, or laser tag competition from the past, or current happenings in your life, this workshop will take your story to the next (more colorful) level.
For beginners and more advanced artists alike, we will use sketch journaling and illustrated writing prompts to give a vibrant view into your life. No need to limit a story to just words here! You’ll learn how to choose the best visuals for your story, while using the art supplies you have at home - pens, markers, crayons, paint, colored pencils, collage paper, or whatever you have available!
Let’s find your personal style as a writer and illustrator, and at the end of the semester, your selected writing and illustration will be published in the Spring 2020 Anthology.
