with Manda Jacobi
July 13-17; ages 6-9. Max occupancy 12.
Everything needs characters, from books, plays, movies, to even drawings and paintings. We’ll talk about what goes into our favorite characters, how to create fully thought out backstories for your own original characters, and even what it feels like to inhabit your characters.
