From Former Students

"If you have a story that you want to tell--whether it be visual, motion, or of the written word--Architecting the Story is the perfect course to develop it. Instructor Christina Roussos lends her keen eye and expertise to each student's project, and  provides a safe and constructive classroom environment, offering substantive and collaborative feedback to ultimately produce the best product, at your own pace."

"Christina Roussos is assertive and insightful when giving constructive feedback. She also leads the class well into organized and useful discussions based on Liz Lerman's Critical Response Process. This was a breath of fresh air for me, for I have had more than one graduate class where "anything goes" in terms of discussion."

"(We) could not have come together in all its girl badassery, paper puppetry, bone-jarring and dark comedic goodness without the “Architecting the Story” class and Christinas’ expert and humor filled guidance!"

"Christina not only met us where we were in terms of concept, content, and form, but also encouraged us get to where we wanted to be. She didn't shy away from complex or dark topics, which we super appreciated. The guests she brought in all had valuable insights to share about their respective fields, and the class structure enabled us to really engage with the other students' work and share and receive feedback that was useful."
