In this week of Scribes, you will be immersed in the diverse art of storytelling. With Greg and Rachel — two of the most creative humans in Seattle! — you’ll have the chance to dream up the weirdest story lines, draw the funniest comics, and be adventurous explorers…even in your same-old surroundings. Learn to turn every experience into a story in this multi-genre exploration of pictures, sounds, and words. All skill levels welcome.
This camp will be held online using a combination of Zoom and Google Classroom.
