Fundraising for Story Planet, and our Upcoming Afterlight Book Club, Latte Art Workshop and March Break Sessions

Space explorers, thanks to you, we’ve raised over $3500 with our GoFundMe campaign!

With your help, we’re hoping to reach our goal of $10, 000 to keep programs like our Lift Off After School Program free to our students. Follow this link to make a donation on our GoFundMe page. Every little bit helps and no amount is too small!

Afterlight Book Club

Our Afterlight Book Club is meeting up this Wednesday, March 2, to discuss the novel Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

An exciting novel set right at the beginning of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the transience of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.

All are welcome to join the discussion (even if you haven’t had time to finish the book). We just ask that you pay what you can to help cover the Meetup costs. See you there!

Latte Art Workshop
Ever wanted to perfect the fine art of latte design? Sign up for our Latte Art Workshop! We’ll teach you how to make perfect milk foam, and latte designs such as rosettas and hearts.

Talented latte artists, Soula and Naomi, lead our Latte Art Workshop. The fee for the workshop is $50 (which goes toward our programs like our Lift Off After School program).

March Break at Story Planet
We’re hosting two installments of our March Break program!

First, on Tuesday, March 15th from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., children between the ages of 10 and 13 are invited to participate in a 1-day stop motion workshop. Participants will learn the basics of stop motion animation, and gather their own materials to make a short animation of their own and bring home a USB key with their original video.

Next, on Wednesday, March 16th from 10am-12pm Story Planet will be hosting a Storymaker Remix for participants in grades 2-7. With the guidance of a facilitator, participants will create a story as a group and then independently write their own ending. Children can also see their story come to life through the illustrations of one of our artists!

Contact liz@storyplanet.ca to sign up for either day!
