Secret Life of Stuff
Three Week Program
In this workshop Story Factory guides students through an exploration of the creative techniques used by cartoonists to anthropomorphise objects and animals. Students will bring objects from their daily lives to life, creating unique characters, imagining daily activities and drafting dialogue. As students work through the writing process they will roleplay interviews and create the content for various written texts including letters. A fun, engaging way to explore character creation!
