Writing Poetry From Art (Grades 9-12)

Saturday, November 4, 2023, 10:00 a.m.
1237 SW 10th Ave Portland, OR 97205

Free, registration required

In this workshop, we’ll discover parallels between visual and written art, and use pieces in the museum collection to inspire poetry. Our activities will include practicing imagery, form, metaphor, and perspective to engage in conversation with actual paintings in a supportive writing community. No previous writing experience necessary! The only requirement is to bring your imagination and good vibes.

This class is a part of Portland Book Festival 2023. Portland Book Festival passes sold separately. For more information about Portland Book Festival, visit pdxbookfest.org.

This workshop is at the Rental Sales Gallery, directly behind the Art Museum on the corner of 10th and Jefferson.
