Level 4 Illustration students were treated to a 2 day workshop with the wonderful Ian Douglas. Ian is a storyteller who is based in West Cumbria. He has over 15 years experience of telling stories, performing and creating street theatre. He works in schools and at festivals all over Britain.
Ian is full of energy and captivated the group with his dynamic and lively personality. He uses games and performing activities to coax people out of themselves. Level 4 were fully engaged and he took them through a series of processes connected to communicating a story with a clear message. This culminated in each student being able to invent a story of their own based upon certain ‘truths’ within themselves or other members of the group. These stories will later be illustrated in the studio.
