Storytelling with Ada Cheng
||Course Description||

In this well-rounded introductory storytelling class, we will discuss storytelling/live lit scenes in Chicago, basic tenets of storytelling, differences in written and oral traditions, performative and emotive components in storytelling, storytelling as an art and profession, the structural contexts within which stories are created and told, and the artistic journey as a storyteller. Students will learn to construct and tell stories in class along with weekly in-depth discussions about the art of storytelling.


Saturdays 1-4PM
