St. Louis Artists' Guild, MPC present "Tell Me a Story" workshop on Dec. 3
Stories surround us. In whatever form they come — visual, written or spoken — they have the power to shape our perception and understanding of the world. Janet Riehl leads this free workshop linked to the St. Louis Artists’ Guild exhibit, “Tell Me a Story,” and co-hosted by Missouri Professional Communicators.
We’ll explore the connection between visual and written storytelling. A custom worksheet will be your map to explore a piece of art in the show as you learn the classic tools and techniques of how to write a scene complete with characters and plot. Your story of up to 200 words, written on the spot, will be displayed with the art in the gallery and online.
Riehl is an award-winning artist, author, storyteller and conference presenter who lives on a home place which has been in her family for six generations. Her book, Sightlines: A Poet’s Diary, is a heart-filled memoir told in 90 story poems about the year after her sister’s sudden death. The companion audiobook, Sightlines: A Family Love Story in Poetry and Music, expands her family’s story with music recorded in her father’s parlor. She is a member of the St. Louis Artists’ Guild Board of Governors.
This free workshop will begin at 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Artists' Guild gallery (12 Jackson Ave. in Clayton, Missouri.
