Summer Workshop for Teens Age 13-15: “Creating Roots” Module 2

July 31, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Module 2:  Telling My Story

Participants will participate in art and expressive therapy experientials focused on personal story telling. Fantasy and filling in blank spaces in personal biographies will be explored. This workshop will include a book binding activity as well as narrative writing, story telling, and poetry. Participants with a strong interest in story telling will be encouraged to share how they would like to tell their story: a novel, a movie, a comic book, etc. and will receive feedback from the group and from moderators as to how to realize their creative expression. Cultural exploration of screen writers, novelists, poets, song writers, and visual biographers who have been touched by adoption will be explored.

Use this form to express interest for your teen. Once we receive your form, we will contact you.
