Workshop Overview

Poetry and collage come together in this fun and eclectic class designed to open new pathways for creativity and expression. Participants will play with a variety of visual poetry prompts and explore the surprising possibilities of combining poetry and image. Students will have time to work independently on their projects outside of the classroom, exploring and incorporating their natural surroundings. Aside from daily prompts, students will work toward completing a miniature chapbook of visual poetry to present on the last day. All levels welcome; no previous writing or art experience is required.
