Join Jean Ellisen, Storyteller, Story Performer, Storytelling Educator, and Faciitator in a fun, interactive workshop, “Storytelling With Children (of all ages).” Using personal narrative as inspiration, we will explore ways to unearth our own stories to share as a starting point. Using prompts and encouragement you can empower your children/students to share their own stories, real and imagined.
Jean Ellisen has been telling stories all her life, but telling stories on purpose for over 25 years. For the past 8 years she has been a resident teaching artist in underserved schools in Richmond through StoryBridge/StAGEbridge, 15 years with the Lafayette Partners In Education, and the past two years with Oxford second graders in her unique “Storytelling, a Family Tradition” program.
