Storytelling is the world’s oldest art form.
And young lives are filled with stories. 

Save the Date:  Saturday, September 14, 2019; all workshops will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  

Location: The Learning Center at the Holton Career and Resource Center, 401 N. Driver Street in Durham

Cost: Free!  

Ages: 5-8, 9-12, 13-17

Register: Yep, the workshops are free – but let us know you’re coming by registering below. 

In honor of our 30th anniversary, Schoolhouse of Wonder is delighted to host three free storytelling workshops led by master storytellers Ray and Tiffany Christian.

The three concurrent workshops are designed for three different age groups with relevant activities and instruction at each level.

All groups will explore personal stories based on the concept of “Outside,” a theme that will mean something different to each participant.

Free lunch provided for all participants. Just pack your imagination and come with us on a storytelling adventure!

Please RSVP by September 10 or call us at (919) 477-2116.  At that time, please let us know if you/your participant has any food allergies of which we should be aware.

One participant from each age group will be asked to share their story on stage later that night at S’More Stories: A Live Storytelling Event for Families.

Raymond (Ray) Christian, EdD, grew up in the segregated inner-city poverty of Richmond, VA. He joined the Army at 17 and served as an infantryman and paratrooper for 20 years, earning multiple decorations. His storytelling has taken him all over the US and Canada and he’s been interviewed for European radio shows and podcasts. When not on stage, Ray is part-time farmer and host of his own podcast, What’s Ray Saying. He resides in the mountains of Western North Carolina with his family and animals.



Tiffany Christian, PhD, wears many hats: Community organizer, church lay leader, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, amateur chef, missionary, and actor/director. Tiffany pulls from her work in education and social work to co-facilitate storytelling workshops with Ray, her husband of 22 years. Of all her adventures, she takes the most pride in her role as matriarch of the Christian Clan, having a total of 7 children (bio, step and in-law) and 4 grandchildren.
