The MAC is generally about visual arts, but sometimes art takes other forms. In this four-day course we will see how tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs) can be used as aids for collaborative creative storytelling.
Each student will take on the role of a different hero (much like playing a character in a stage-play), and together will decide how their characters react to challenges and conflicts devised by the instructor/Game Moderator.
They will leave with the knowledge and resources needed to continue telling stories together with RPGs after the course is complete.
Ages 12 and up.. parents are encouraged to sign up with their kiddos.
This four-day course meets from 3:30 to 5pm, every day July 10th through 13th.
The cost of this class includes studio time, access to all the equipment and tools needed, as well as in-depth instruction.

Instructor Bio, Paul Cloud:
Paul considers his artistic outlet to be creative writing and storytelling. Rather than working in a physical medium, Paul plays and runs tabletop roleplaying games, delighted to collaborate with other players weaving dynamic and interesting tales that live on beyond game night as the stuff of dinner party legend.
Paul has worked for years as an educator, and is an avid tabletop gamer. Paul's capstone project for his master's degree in education focused on the potential benefits of incorporating tabletop roleplaying games into a classroom environment.
