The Art of Storytelling is a website hosted by the Delaware Museum of Art. On the site students can learn about works of art. The better part of the site are the tools for creating short audio stories by using elements of artwork, text, and voice. In Tell a Story students select a work of art, write a short story about it, then record their own narration of the story. In Picture a Story students select a scene, choose characters, add props, write their stories, then record narration for their stories. Both tools have drag and drop editors that make it easy for students to rearrange and alter the size of elements in their stories.
Applications for Education
Tell a Story and Picture a Story could be used as part of a creative writing lesson. Art teachers could have students use Tell a Story to record and share their analysis of artwork.
