Sometimes we have a true story from our lives that we’re dying to tell, but we’re unsure how to begin. This hands-on workshop will focus on the essentials of writing a memoir – what makes a good story, how to shape your material so that it’s compelling, what to tell (and omit), how to develop your own unique voice, and the broader issues involved in turning a private experience into a public work.
With four schools within walking distance, we are truly at “The Center” and excited to offer even more options for local students. The newly renovated building offers a more flexible space and will enable us to expand and improve our Youth Arts Education programs. We have expanded beyond Summer Camps to offer classes for youth in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Arts education isn’t just for the young!
