In the Caribbean storytelling is a very important part of life especially in deep country areas where there is a lack of electricity and other modern conveniences. It is a tradition that was brought to the Caribbean by African slaves and was used mainly to pass on information from one generation to the next mainly because reading and writing were forbidden by law and slaves who were caught would pay with their lives. We will explore some folklore characters and participants will have the opportunity of artistically representing their interpretation as art be it good or evil, beauty or beast. Join us!
1.Storytelling on the following folklore characters: Douen, La Diablesse, Soucouyant, Papa Bois, and Phantom
2. Students create their version of one or a collage of the characters talked about in the stories with a caption of the main thing the character does.
Medium: Paper, paint, pencils, glitter, etc.

Suitable for children aged 7-15 years

******Please note there will be photographs taken at the workshop, please let us know if you would rather not have your child face included in the pictures.
