ClassSense of Adventure After School: Build your Own Hero & Villain for Adventure
This class is offered as part of the Loft's Sense of Adventure theme.
In this class, we will focus on how to create interesting characters by examining some of our favorite heroes and villains to see what makes them so memorable; we will learn what essential qualities they possess as we work to create our own original characters.
We'll also look at setting and conflict and play with various problems that our characters might face and see what stories emerge from our characters. By the end of the class, students can expect to have completed a one-page scene using what we have learned. This class is suited for those interested in both realistic fiction and fantasy.
