Creative Club

Creative Club is perfect for kids who love to tell their own stories. Each session we learn about a different kind of picture book, then make our own version.

We’ll cover:

  • Counting books
  • Wordless stories
  • Concept books
  • Interactive Books
  • Having fun with mistakes
  • This camp is great for kids in grades 1-6.

Creative Camp can be from a single session to five consecutive sessions. Sessions last one hour. Each session is $150 and can accommodate up to 15 campers. Creative camp works as a virtual workshop or an in-person workshop. It’s great for homeschoolers, unschoolers, and kids in school!

Teacher feedback on an author visit about The Science and Technology of Leonardo da Vinci:

“Elizabeth thoroughly engaged the students through active participation and her knowledge.”

“Our students are still talking about this presentation almost a month later! Elizabeth is engaging and funny, and really connected with our students. She also shared information about DaVinci beyond what the students generally knew which was neat.”
