Thursdays, 2:15–3:40, Mar. 29–May 3
Instructor: Skip Bromley
The magic begins with the card. Pick a card, any card at all, and a story is told. The card might say: “Birthday Saga.” Skip Bromley, your instructor, will tell his own engaging story about the subject. You will then have an opportunity to create another story and share, either singularly or as part of a group effort. You also have the option to simply be an audience member, enjoying the stories shared by others. This course is designed to allow participants to analyze, construct, and critique stories, learning the most effective way to tell a story. No matter your level of involvement, you will ultimately appreciate the elements and evolution of storytelling and be highly entertained during the process.
