Creative Writing?  You asked for MORE and we are bringing it to YOU!

SSESH  is pleased to welcome The Fig Writer's Studio to our wonderful after school Fine Arts Academy!

The Fig Writer's Studio Children’s Workshop is a lively and intellectually engaging program that introduces children in Primary, Lower El, and Upper El, to the art and craft of writing through storytelling and imagination.  The program endeavors to entertain and foster creative expression, as well as explore the function and values of writing, stimulate our children’s imaginations, and clarify thinking.  The Fig Writers Studio’s goal is to teach our children to write compelling stories, with creative transitions, character desires, obstacles, climax, dialogue and resolve.  The company believes creative writing offers children a safe space to make sense of the world around them, as well as a way to explore humor, narrative complexity, abstraction, and metaphor.  The Fig Writer's Studio also believes in having fun, encouraging whimsy and wonder, and being inspired to write!  

Classes will be offered Tuesdays for Primary students from 4:30 to 5:30, Wednesdays for Lower El students from 4:00 to 5:30, and Thursdays for Upper El students from 4:00 to 5:30.  We will conclude the Spring Semester with a Student Reading.  Parents will also receive an anthology of student writings.  Cost: $380 per student.  For more information and to check out The Fig Writer's Studio, visit them at here and say hello!

Registration for The Fig Writer's Studio Children’s Workshop will open up at the same time as our re-enrollment for our other FAA 2017 spring classes.

Please join me in welcoming the program to our campus and take advantage of this terrific opportunity for the young writer in your home.
