Description: This creative writing workshop encourages children to engage with instrumental music of different types with a focus on how the music makes them feel. The workshop uses a ‘translation of feelings’ into words that are then used as a platform to create characters and a plot. Using their senses in this constructive manner enables participants to develop a simple story outline which they can then elaborate upon. For participants that attended the workshop in the fall, this will be an opportunity to enjoy the workshop again with a new series of instrumental songs and another chance to practice the method and create another fantastic story!
