The Storytellers Academy
Arts, Culture & Community
An extension of our parent company (The Storytellers Alliance), The Storytellers Academy is a fun and engaging arts and humanities enrichment program for K-12, designed to ignite a love of storytelling, increase confidence, and build community.
Through our literary, visual, and performing arts programs, students will develop critical thinking, creative writing, and effective communication skills while exploring the arts, developing a structured narrative, and engaging in storytelling as an expressive outlet, for recreation, and to improve overall academic performance.

Literary, Visual, and Performing Arts Programs
One of our core values is to make arts exposure and education more accessible.
We do this by bringing the classroom to your community!
We are proud to partner with Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation to host our in-person classes and workshops.
Currently, we serve the Lutz, LOL, and North Tampa area, with classes held at the Lutz Community Center.
If you would like us to bring our classroom to YOUR community, let us know and we'll make it happen!
