7-10- Mary Ostrowski A creativity workshop using the Drip, Drop & Drizzle writing process...we'll get children’s creative juices flowing in this 6 week workshop using creative arts and writing by:
• starting with their brilliant ability to imagine and draw.
• guiding them to write about their beautiful drawing.
• prompting them to voice their valuable opinions on various topics through written expression.

So often children think they have nothing to say and nothing to write about. Throughout this workshop, your children will realize they have a lot to say and much to write. The workshop will culminate with an Author’s Tea where workshop participants will have the opportunity to share a piece of writing with you sitting in the audience!
