Through a study of figurative language, rhyme scheme, and rhythm, participants will learn how these foundations enhance poetry and fairy tale writing. We will explore our natural environment as well as our classroom space to write, imagine, role play, build, visualize, draw, and read (of course) examples of these works.
Our Poetry Mini-Camp will also create a painting to go along with their original poems that we'll work on throughout the week. We'll study several different types of poetry and work on writing our own as well. We'll incorporate all of our senses and the world around us as we head outside for inspiration.

In our Fairy Tale Mini-Camp, participants will examine themes as they relate to our current world and re-imagine fairy tales as they might happen today. We'll brainstorm, write, and act out these "fractured fairy tales". We'll also build fairy houses from found items and recycled materials during the week.
