A folktale is a story handed down from one generation to another by word of mouth. There are several types of folktales: myths, legends, fairy tales, and Märchens. MUFARO’S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS is an example of a Märchen. Its characteristics include a magical land or fantasy setting, and involve an “underdog” who, with the help of magic, obtains a birthright. Using this story as our inspiration, we will create our own illustrated Märchen celebrating African folklore.
Each one-hour workshop is $100 and is limited to 25 students. Workshops are customizable, available year-round, and able to travel to your school for an additional fee.
