11.23.19, 1:30-3pm: Storybook Workshop, "Seeing With Your Heart"
Ages 7-100... We believe in generations of people working side by side! *Please note: at least one registered adult needs to accompany children age 12 and under.
Imagine: What would the world look like if all folks grasped the significance of the story they carry inside? During Storybook Workshops, Frieda B. author Renata Bowers personally guides you and your guests through the process of doing just that - identifying and capturing elements of your one-of-a-kind-very-important story, via your own personal storybook.
This is not about writing a story of your life. It's about exploring and documenting (via writing, drawing, doodling, posting pictures and memorabilia, cutting-and-pasting, etc.) the things that make you uniquely you... what you're good at, what you care about, your memories, moments, hopes, fears, dreams. In essence, it's a way of helping you better understand and navigate the story of YOU.
(Psst: Adults - this is a marvelous activity to do alongside the children and teens you love.)
You can come back to this workshop time and again, because each time we'll focus on a different Frieda B. book and topic, mining a different and significant aspect of story. The world very much needs every good story, and this process helps you clarify and dream about yours.
Workshop Topic: Seeing With Your Heart
Based on Frieda B. a Great Day at the Dog Park. In this workshop we'll explore the concept of seeing things differently... the essential role imagination and empathy play in living our stories. When we allow ourselves to see with our heart, not just our eyes, how does that lead the way in making the world a kinder, more understanding place?
About the Frieda B. Storybook. Our Storybook brings together elements to help make the storybooking adventure easy to begin. Packaged together are: one 8.5" x 11" hardcover Storybook of 46 blank pages; one large "I'm Free to Be Me!" Sticker; one Storybook Bookmark; one Frieda B. Pencil; and Frieda B.'s Tips & Tools for Making Your Own Storybook.
"You will fill up each page over days, weeks and years with your memories and dreams, with your hopes and your fears. Yes, with pencils and crayons and pictures and glue, you will fill up your book with the story of you."
