Weekends of June and July, 1 p.m., Free with paid admission or membership

Every family has a great story. Join local authors and artists, Larry Burns, James Luna, Deana Romo, and Teodor Dumitrescu, for a series of four workshops to write and illustrate your family tales - tall or true.

To fully complete your "story", you'll want to come back at least four times, once for each section: Finding Your Story, Telling Your Story, Drawing Your Story, and Coloring Your Story. Each section is offered on two dates.

We are offering all four sections in both English and Spanish.

Please join us on Saturday, July 29, at 1 p.m. Award-winning storyteller and variety artist Karen Rae Kraut joins forces with guitar and keyboard virtuoso Jay DeAngelo in The Giant (who had no heart in his body!). Watch out for the giant whose heart has been separated from his body! A pair of unlikely heroes, the Ash Boy and the Cowgirl Princess, risk everything to defeat the giant with help from a talking wolf, a king salmon, and a blackbird in this musical recreation of a Norwegian folklore classic. Songs, movement, and a live musical soundtrack will keep listeners of all ages part of the action from start to finish! Opportunities will also be available for those who completed their own Tell Your Story to read them aloud during this fun and interactive afternoon.
