Illustrate & Paint Your Story or Poem with Juliann Fraser

In this watercolour and pen-and-ink project, Juliann will help you bring words to life with step-by-step instructions that take students from story, to storyboard, to an illustrated booklet. The stories can be written by the students as part of a Language Arts project, or they can pick their favourite fairy tale. Stories should be chosen and ready beforehand. Teachers will be asked to laminate the illustrations afterward.
