Learn the basics of developing your own characters and story.

You’ll learn how your characters can tell your story, including stories with a hero and a villain and with the hero changing over time. By the end of the workshop you’ll have created your own 4-page illustrated story! $35 for Family-level Museum members; $45 for non-members
