“Let Art Speak To You” – Word + Image Art Workshop Series

$120

with Carly Palmer

Calendar Oct 4, 2022 at 6:30 pm, runs for 3 weeks

This NEW three (3) part workshop series will introduce students to the concept of bringing together visual art alongside written word. The focus on this workshop will be on weaving together word + image to tell a new story. Inviting in words that capture thoughts and feelings adds a whole new dynamic to the art making experience. Likewise it offers the art the chance to “speak” in more ways than one. Students will be guided each week with art & writings prompts to deepen their creative process.

Week One: Ekphrastic Poetry

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 their experience with the work.

Week Two: Poetry Collage

Students will be invited to create their own poems from their cut out words. Students can work intentionally by piecing together their words and/or they can add in an element of surprise and randomness by putting their poem together by chance. Both methods will be discussed, and students will be encouraged to explore which method they are most interested in experimenting with.

Week Three: Fairytale & Mythology Collage

Students will be invited to create collages inspired by reading well-known fairytales and/or mythology. They will select symbols, themes, and/or words create their own visual stories inspired by the stories.

with Carly Palmer

Calendar Nov 18, 2022 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

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

*This is the perfect group outing, bring your friends and family!

Students will be invited to create their own poems from their cut out words. We will be flipping through magazines to look for words that “speak” to us. Students can work intentionally by piecing together their words and/or they can add in an element of surprise and randomness by putting their poem together by chance. Both methods will be discussed, and students will be encouraged to explore which method they are most interested in experimenting with.

This collage workshop is designed with the invitation to engage with one’s creativity through self-expression, choice, play, and be exploratory by nature. Students will be guided and invited in creating their own collages in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.

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

All materials will also be provided. Students are welcome to bring their favorite magazines and/or paper clippings that they would like to incorporate into their collages.

One drink Included in price. Alcoholic or nonalcoholic drinks available. Please arrive a little early, as we will begin the workshop promptly at the start time. This is a one-night workshop.
