The storytelling series starts with photography. Professional photographer, Larry Stuart, will lead the first workshop to teach the kids about storytelling through photography.
Each participant will be given a Canon Powershot A2300 16 Megapixel camera (pictured above). After the photography session, participants will learn about theater, storytelling and writing through local artists who have volunteered their time.

The storytelling series highlights the value of Story, and its potential to educate, heal and empower individuals.
The goal of this project will be to provide students a playful and creative space to enhance and expand their visual & written communication skills, gain a sense of self, and to discover and tell their own stories.
Communication is a necessary tool that allows individuals to perform better at school or at work. It also encourages people to use words or art to creatively transform their pain. Our long-term goal is to create a model that can be replicated by other instructors and non-profits in Madison County.
Plan to join us on Sunday, May 5th at 1 pm at the Park Place Community Center to celebrate the stories of the children of this city at our Story Exhibition & Dessert Reception.
