SUMMER FUN: Teaching kids to tell stories - Education - News | Mornington Peninsula Leader

If you've got kids aged 8 to 11 who are interested in writing (and you live somewhere around the Mornington Peninsula), I'll be giving a writing workshop:

CHILDREN are invited to brush up on their drawing and story writing skills at creative summer activities in Rosebud.

The Southern Peninsula Arts Centre and Mornington Peninsula Library have joined to present four workshops for children and teens.

Workshops start on January 21 with children’s book illustrator Myke Mollard.

In this practical workshop, children will get a closer look at Myke’s style, colour and life and draw their own pictures.

Myke’s workshop starts at Southern Peninsula Arts Centre (SPAC) at Rosebud Secondary College, Eastbourne Rd, at 10am.

...

Author Wendy Orr will be at SPAC working with children aged 8-11 on January 22 at 10am. The author of Nim’s Island will help children with turning ideas into stories.

Thanks! The kids certainly did love it – it was fantastic working with such keen young writers.

Please note this was last February, if you're thinking of joining us!
