All my children's workshops can be tailored to any age range. Each are designed to be an hour, but can be tailored into longer workshops with the addition of writing exercises. I bring a power point presentation for each, but do a lot of interactive discussion with the kids. I prefer smaller groups, but I'm able to do large groups as well. Contact me to discuss options and pricing. krisasselin (@) gmail (dot) com. Please include "Possible School Visit"in the subject line.
