What I mean when I say: Art meet Poetry (Grades 6-8)

Wed, November 10 from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST
Virtual Event Virtual Event

Ever see a work of art and you want to tell the artist or the piece: I love it, or I don’t get it, or I don’t see myself in this at all? You can! In this workshop, we’ll talk back to art. Look at examples of other artists and writers who have done the same. Send ourselves on a journey using writing exercises and imagination, collecting our poems line by line along the way.
