Storytelling as a Folk Art--a "Living Art"
"I believe storytelling to be not only a folk art, but a living art Music in all it's forms is a living art in that it becomes a reality only when it is played. Dancing is a living art, for it lives only while you watch the movement, grace, interpretation of the dancer. So it is with storytelling: it lives only while the story is being told." --Ruth Sawyer
"Storytelling is an ancient form of expression that has been experiencing a Renaissance. In our modern media world, filled with preprogrammed imagery, storytelling offers the listener an opportunity to be creative; to design costumes, sets and scenery in the theatre of the mind. Sharing stories brings people intimately together." --Heather Forest
