Beatles tribute band Mostly Moptop will perform a concert of Beatles music (and a few little surprises), but throughout we would do readings of prose and poetry not only by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, but also by key writers who influenced The Beatles such as Lewis Carroll, George Eliot, Shakespeare, and James Joyce (among several others).

Slate, Barbara You Can Do A Graphic Novel Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Visual Arts- Cartooning
The students create a character study that tells everything you’ve ever wanted to know about a character, plot a story, do an interesting layout, and demystify the creative process. Some of the schools and libraries have organized an exhibition of the students' work. It is good for a teen’s self-esteem to see their work on display. It also attracts a lot of attention to the library, and usually results in articles in local newspapers. Any press showing a student's work is a big plus for their portfolio. Four to twelve sessions can be scheduled. Details are at http://youcandoagraphicnovel.com/
$1001- $3000
Moore, Kathleen Unleash your creativity Literature- Creative Writing

This course is a series of fun activities that help the participants get rid of their inner critic, find their inner imagination, and discover the fun of imagining things.

Visual Arts- Crafts,
Visual Arts- Other
This introductory class will teach basic bookbinding skills through simple bookbinding styles like chapbooks. Attendees will become familiar with bookbinding tools, develop hand techniques, and learn about basic book structures. This hands on workshop will cover the materials used in bookbinding, as well as best practices for folding and cutting paper, using bookbinding tools, and different types of sewing methods, in addition to learning how to bind simple books. This workshop is different from stand-alone offerings in that attendees will make their books from the beginning, with no materials being pre-cut or prepared in advance. The class is taught in steps, with the teacher displaying and explaining the step for the class and answering questions, and then breaking out into "Do-It-Yourself (DIY)" times when the attendees perform the step on their own. During the DIY times, the teacher takes questions and helps anyone who needs individual help. Handouts explaining each step (with diagrams) are included for the attendees to reference throughout the program and take home. This program is taught by a professional book artist versed in both traditional and modern styles of bookbinding and book preservation.
