Art of Storytelling

Your students can express their creativity in this collaboration of art, music, and theater.  Perfect for your art class, this project can be done with any grade, K – 12.  No prior illustration experience is necessary.

Play Write

Play Write

Looking for a great group writing project? This program introduces play writing as a collaborative art form, providing students the opportunity to expand their four C’s: Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Creativity. Inspiration can be a writing prompt connected to their curriculum, or an adaptation of an existing story in the public domain. Play Write is best for grades 7-12.
