For ages 8 – 11 (grades 3 – 6)

Jazz up your child’s Spring Break with a creative writing workshop inspired by Legends from Los Angeles: Betye, Lezley, and Alison Saar in the Crocker Collection. Students grades 3-6 are invited to join 916 Ink for an hour-long creative writing workshop using music and artwork from the Crocker’s collection, all interpreted through fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Utilizing the 916 Ink Method, students will find themselves in a safe environment where they will be invited to share their writing, share feedback with their peers, and feel empowered to express themselves through the written word.

916 Ink is a Sacramento arts-based creative writing nonprofit that provides workshops and tutoring for Sacramento area youth to transform them into confident writers and published authors. Their workshops are designed to increase literacy skills, improve vocabulary, teach empathy, positively impact social and emotional learning, and expand communication skills.

The only supplies needed for this program are a paper and pen. Favorite and fun coloring tools are welcome but not necessary. Looking for more Spring Break fun? Try Spring Break Fun at Home: Create your own picture book!
