Studies in Collage: Scissor & Sip - “Playing With Poetry” Collage Workshop (for 16+, North Classroom)

with Carly Palmer


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.
