Graphic Design Online: Storybook Edition with Kyla Christie

Pay What You Can $5 – $75

In this class, students will find their favorite toy, stuffed animal, device, or object and bring them to life in a story of their own! Like a guessing game, students will keep their favorite objects hidden and will use storytelling to slowly show other students what their objects are. At the end of the class, students will walk away with a fully done online picture book of their object’s adventure to share with family and friends! Using imagination and creative writing, their favorite objects will now be a story they can read anytime they want. 

NOTE: students must be able to access Canva, a free program either via computer (preferred) or the app on a mobile device.
