Do you love all things fantasy? Do you love reading and writing fantasy, as well as creating your own fantasy world with maps, characters, stories and art? If so this class is for you!
In this class we will read the first two books of the Narnia series and the first book of Fablehaven.
We will study what was going on in England during World War II and why children were sent to the country; and how C.S. Lewis used that experience to send our heroes on a journey into another world. We will study symbolism, influences, geography, mythology and themes throughout the first two books of the Chronicles of Narnia.
We will create our own fantasy world, characters, geography and themes. This will include drawing, character building, clay creations, costume design, making maps, and writing stories about this world.
The second semester we will read the first book of the Fablehaven series. We will see how to mix fantasy with our own world. We will dive into Kendra and Seth’s experience as they learn about magical creatures. We will create our own fantasy preserve with magical creatures, dangers, and obstacles that our heroes must overcome to reach their goals.
No need to purchase books for this class, we will read during class. This class is perfect for the student who love creative writing and art!.
All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
