Creación de personajes y universos narrativos a partir de lo vivido

Todos los niveles | ¿Te imaginas aprovechando las vivencias del día a día y transformándolas en personajes? Durante este curso crearemos personajes y universos, a través de experiencias y personas reales para maravillar a los lectores con la reconstrucción de personajes y mundos únicos, llevando la realidad a la ficción. Potenciaremos la creatividad con diferentes ejercicios creativos que guiarán el proceso de nuevas formas de construcción y composición del personaje a partir de lo vivido, conectando con nuestra memoria y usando la visualización creativa.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
