Creative Writing

Our original enrichment offering, Creative Writing is the course that inspired Amore Learning to exist! It is a no-brainer that writing creatively is the perfect intersection of boosting skills while having fun. We realized just how perfect it was when we saw skills soar, parents rave, and kids smile all the while! This course inspires writers of all ages and skill levels to engage with writing in fun and relatable ways. From creating characters and plot lines to responding to thought-provoking and often silly prompts, our Creative Writers create portfolios they will read and cherish for decades to come!

Graphic Novels

Whether or not your child is an avid graphic novel enthusiast, they are sure to become one in this fun, imaginative, and confidence-building course! We will create characters and plots, and use them to write stories and even chapter books. We have found that exploring the world of graphic novels has helped even the most reluctant writers to embrace the writing process. The individualized skills we teach allow writers of all skill levels to come up with an idea, put pen to paper, and feel great about the process and the final product! We will focus on having fun while boosting writing skills in a warm, nurturing, and creative environment.
