Storytelling and Art


Date: Fri Feb 07 2003 - 10:14:10 PST

Dear friends,

I have a request from another storyteller who is looking for ways to help art
teacher's incorporate storytelling into their curriculum. I did a quick
search on the net and came up with these links (listed below) that I thought
I would share with you. Does anyone else have ideas to blend art and the art
of storytelling? Many thanks for your suggestions.
