Peeling away all the glitter, gowns, fairy godmothers and singing mice, we get down to the real origins of fairy tales. The original fairy tales are not those wonderful happy ever after stories some children have read to them at bedtime. They were warnings about life and what happened to those who didn’t listen. Fairy tales have been around forever, cultures have similar tales, each with a cautionary tale included. This class digs into those tales and really analyzes what happens in the original stories before Disney changed them. We also learn about fractured fairy tales, how to create them and will, by the end of the class, have compiled our own group of student created fractured fairy tales. This is a class for students aged 12 and older, 1 semester
