This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience.
Twenty works of art will be presented to the group. Each participant selects a painting as a source of inspiration.
The facilitator then guides the participants to learn the basic elements of how to structure their short stories – looking beyond the obvious in their chosen piece of work, pulling meaning from the canvas, letting their imaginations run wild. They will be encouraged to find their own voices and write from their souls.
Participants will be encouraged to draw from the artwork their own vision. To develop not only characters but use colour, composition, style, and setting as a source for their own story.
It is envisaged that by the end of the course each participant will have created or be on their way to creating their own unique short story.
