Welcome to our captivating Character Creation Workshop, where the realm of storytelling and boundless imagination converge! If you’ve ever dreamed of breathing life into unique and unforgettable characters for your stories, games, or artistic endeavors, this workshop is your gateway to exploring the art of character creation. Discover the power of character backstories in shaping their identities. We’ll guide you through techniques to craft compelling pasts, formative experiences, and motivations that propel your characters on their journeys. Students will participate in exercises that will elevate character development work by adding a walk, voice, and multiple playable characteristics. Participants will leave the workshop with a solid foundation of how to create characters.
