The Monster in Me will guide teachers in creative ways to tap the imagination of students for writing and art making. The workshop's literacy activities focus on building vocabulary while describing the traits and characteristics of famous monsters and then developing personal writing rich in adjectives, simile and metaphor. The integrated art process will help participants to explore color, texture and collage-making techniques in creating a portrait representing two sides of the artist's self: the literal side seen by all and the figurative "monster" that lurks within, shown only when provoked.
