Let Art Speak to You – Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop(North Classroom)

$50

with Carly Palmer

Calendar May 20, 2022 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Join Instructor Carly Palmer for a unique poetry + collage workshop!

Students will be invited to write their own ekphrasis poetry inspired by well-known artworks.

Ekphrastic poetry has come to be defined as poems written about works of art; however, in ancient Greece, the term ekphrasis was applied to the skill of describing a thing with vivid detail. In addition to the descriptions of a work of art, an ekphrastic poem usually includes an exploration of how the speaker is impacted by his or her experience with the work.

Materials will be provided, but students are welcome to bring their favorite writing pen and notebook.

No experience is necessary. Just bring an open mind to sit with any & all with possibilities!
