Encouraging Creativity in Kids

Marie-Louise Gay

Friday, October 20
10:00am - 11:30am
Studio 1398

1398 Cartwright St.,
3rd Floor

Teachers, educators and parents, this discussion on nurturing creativity in young people is for you. Join internationally-acclaimed author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay to learn how she uses her own award-winning books—Short Stories for Little Monsters and Any Questions?—to teach drawing, writing and storytelling to children. For Gay, this begins with demystifying the creative process and focusing on the practical and inspirational elements behind her books. Children should never see creativity as something that is beyond them. Writing and drawing, like anything else, is a skill that can be taught, learned and improved upon. At this event, Gay will empower you by offering the tools you need to engage students in making art of their own.

Suitable for grades 10-12 and adults.
