Artist: Noa Baum
Students enjoy interactive discussions with dynamic activities and creative dramatics demonstrating how to tell a story in this storytelling residency. Students learn by working individually, in pairs, and in groups as Noa guides them to tell a story without memorization, learn story structure, develop the plot, listen to others, and use basic presentation techniques.

Noa's residency was a huge success! It was obvious that the students walked away with many new skills. This residency allowed the students to express themselves and use their imagination in so many ways! They actively looked forward to their sessions together and could not wait to see Ms. Noa!

It is a joy to experience Noa’s enthusiastic delivery and passion for storytelling. I was consistently impressed with her creativity and ability to connect with both children and adults.

I liked the time with Noa because I got to do things that I never did before, like dance in the middle of the circle.
