WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING

"As an elementary school art teacher with a 10-year tenure, armed with a master's in education, I thought I was capable of writing and illustrating a picture book in a fairly decent way.  Little did I know that I didn't know about the ABC's of crafting a good picture book. This course is the best thing that happened to me in helping me both understand and practice the art of compelling storytelling. " Dorothy Wawa

Art Teacher / Storyteller

“I have learned rule-after-rule about picture book writing …but the creative side of me got buried in that immense load of left-brain wonderful knowledge. I have had some great past instructors, but I could not get to the fun and creative side of my imagination to bring my stories forth and on paper…until now. All that has changed … thanks to this course with Arree Chung. This course is so well put together.  It especially keeps up with the style of the printed picture books of today increasing your potential for publication. The creative side of writing and, if you wish, illustrating your picture book ideas can be done here with the help of Arree and Storyteller Academy. I highly recommend Storyteller Academy.   And, I can’t say enough about the personable and encouraging Arree Chung.  His own recent published pictures books speak volumes of his knowledge and creativity.” Stella Lopez

"I think this course ( Arree's) has been exactly what I needed to move forward. I can hardly wait to begin another story after I polish this one some more. I like your videos Arree! Seeing the work you put into developing your books and seeing examples are what works for me." Maggie Griessmeier

Storyteller/Illustrator

"I love the course so far, and I love that it is lifetime membership because 12 weeks isn't enough for me to polish my unwritten stories and ideas." Mikki Hwang
