Learn how to illustrate a story with Amanda Kastner, an illustrating storyteller and designer from the Northwoods.

Amanda Kastner, author of George and the Dragonvine, is an illustrator and storyteller from the Northwoods. Storytelling with Pictures is a four session class. It is an introduction to creating stories with art. We often have ideas for stories, and sometimes we even have a character in mind that we want to create a story for, this class will help flesh out that process.

You will leave this class with one short story and the story writing process in your back pocket. The class will look at composition and learn how to fully engage the reader by creating a defined style for your story. You will explore expressions and body language and learn how to put them to work for your character.

Have you ever aspired to write a children’s books? This class is for you.


This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Community Arts Education Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
