Creative Writing

What do you think might be going on in the painting. Can you write a story about it?

We have produced a storyboard template here to help you create it.  Draw a new scene and write a few sentences to help you create your story.

Before scene – who are the characters, why are they there?

During (the artwork) – what is happening, what problem is about to occur?

After – what actually happened, how did they resolve it?

Why not check out the Creative Writing resources from the Author Gabrielle Kent for inspiration
