It’s been a little busy in Allan House of late, what with moving into the festive season, a local art show to work towards, I also had my first assignment to hand in for an MA in illustration course I started in September.
One of the tasks for my studies was to create a blog around a key word “Storytelling”. The blog can be viewed in Wordpress where you will find how I approached the exercise and my outcomes.
After researching how stories are structured alongside the way images are put together, I created a way of telling a story using old techniques which require a story teller as well as a listener. Working together, children's creativity can be encouraged as they work with the characters around a background.
Ideal for early readers, this format utilises the fairy-tale of Little Red Riding Hood but it could easily be adapted for different types of story telling and different types of events and social interaction.
