Class Description

Class Description:

Creative writing meets visual art in this weeklong teen class! Through a variety of media, you will have the opportunity to explore how word and image work together to bring life to your ideas. Each day will be filled with activities such as illustrated narrative, comic creation, and found poetry collage to combine writing skills like creating character, voice, and narrative arc with artistic craft, such as color and composition.

How can you integrate these art forms to express yourself? How can the perspective of a picture change the tone of a story? How can words mingle to create meaning that the image does not?

Takeaways:

By the end of the week, you’ll have a polished piece of illustrated writing as well as some beginnings, drafts, and lots of tools to fuel your creativity.

Who Should Register?

No experience is necessary -- this course is geared toward creative, energetic, and open-minded creators all of levels. Writing and art supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. For writers age 13 - 18 ONLY.

Parents/guardians must also complete this permission form online before the start of the class.

Scholarships:

GrubStreet is happy to be able to offer some full scholarships for our teen writing camps. Please wait to hear from our Scholarship committee before registering for the class, as scholarships cannot be applied retroactively. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is Wednesday, August 22nd at 5pm. Learn more and apply.

*If you are registering on behalf of your teen, add their email information in the “For a Friend or Child?” field on the right-hand side of the screen before you check out. This will send them a direct link and reminder to create their own profile with GrubStreet.

(After adding the class to your cart, click "Checkout" and click “Add” next to “For a Friend or Child?” on the right-hand side to fill in their email. This is an easy way of linking the class to your child and encourages them to create their own account.)
