Stories are how we learn about ourselves, other people, the world itself and the experience of life. By looking at the foundations of storytelling on this wonderful course you will learn how stories entertain, inform, instruct and unite. You’ll study all forms of storytelling from art to music, literature to performance and learn how to be a comedian, a dramatist or a painter in order to communicate your unique message.
For our younger students the programme focuses on building stories and developing creative skills while also looking at the tools needed to become an effective communicator and to engage an audience. Our older students will work on extending their reach as writers and will be stretched and inspired along the way.
- Art, music and literary appreciation
- Written English - the study of poetry, literary analysis, planning, structuring, vocabulary building, creativity
- Spoken English – development of rhetorical skills, drama, presentation and communication skills
There are lots of ways to tell a story. Here, students have built their own characters in the woods using clay, leaves and fir cones.
