Storytelling 101 is Back

Throughout the fall and winter, Milwaukee PBS offers several FREE workshops for children and teachers. At Storytelling 101, children will learn the basics of storytelling and learn how art makes stories come alive.

Storytelling 101 teaches children to identify story and illustration elements and is offered to children enrolled in kindergarten through third grade, accompanied by a parent or teacher, in southeastern Wisconsin. Each session is 45-60 minutes in length.
