|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject examines how story and storytelling engage children and young people. It focuses on how artful, imaginative and narrative experiences enrich and expand personal and social awareness, and connectedness. Students will explore story creating and story telling as expressive modes of communication and meaning-making through practice-based arts workshops linked to theory, and through site visits. Students, individually and in groups, will critique, compose/co-create and present stories suitable for young audiences drawing on a variety of texts such as artworks, picture books, film music, scriptwriting, graphic novels, and zines for a youth readership.
