When The Shoe Fits — Finding your Fairytale Character: An Adaptation Workshop for Teens
with Carson Grace Becker

February 23rd from 5 to 7 pm MST
Ages 13 and up (no adults)
Max 12 participants

This workshop is Digital via Zoom

In this workshop, artists will explore the characters, actions and themes of their favorite fairytale. We’ll look at the many characters that inhabit the chosen tale, and then, through a series of exploratory exercises, artists will write a monologue for a chosen character — one that may be literal adaptation, or one that spans a range of story worlds.
