Bilingual Storytelling and Publishing Program for Kids

Ama Yawson and 1 Visual Arts Teaching artist

During the sessions, students will learn the fundamental elements of storytelling and publishing. They will learn key story elements such as protagonist, antagonist, rising action, climax, and falling action.  They will determine the social justice-related problem that their characters face and the creative solutions that their characters will employ to solve the social justice challenges and create a better world. 

The teaching artists will then coach students through the process of writing and revising their own stories before the stories are translated into Spanish and then printed. Master drummers and vocalists will also teach students how to play the djembe drums and sing as an accompaniment to stories. Additionally, students will be coached in Spanish and English elocution in preparation for their storytelling performance. Finally, the entire program will culminate in a performance and a book launch event.

Classes offered on the following dates from 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM:                                                                       
Tuesdays 5/4, 5/11, 5/18, 5/25, 6/1, 6/8, 6/15, 6/22, 6/29 and 7/6

The mission of Patchogue Arts Council, Inc. is to ambitiously educate, support, and elevate the arts- community. This includes artists at all stages of their careers as well as supporting the development of new works and public projects through exhibitions and innovative programming that emphasize community engagement while aiding in the revitalization and sustainability of the community. The Patchogue Arts Council, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose programming supports arts across all of Long Island.

Museum of Contemporary Arts Long Island (MoCA L.I.) is the exhibition space of the Patchogue Arts Council (PAC).
By redefining PAC’s exhibition space from Gallery to Museum, opportunities for the community and the artists we serve grows exponentially. PAC has always been unconventional in comparison to other arts councils. Our primary focuses are to make current and contemporary art accessible to everyone and to serve artists across Long Island. We work to create inclusiveness in all of our opportunities for Long Island’s Spanish-speaking communities as well. Through our programming, we support, promote, and encourage early, mid-career, and established artists working in all media and all walks of life.
