The Imaginative Act of Poetry: Exploring Art to Spark Your Poem

Everyone has a poem inside of them…maybe several! This eight week program will fire up creativity through sparks lit from famous and not-so-famous works of art. Participants will learn about ekphrastic poetry (poetry inspired by art) and practice writing techniques based on a variety of artwork. They will respond to writing prompts and learn the craft of revising poetry. Each session will allow time to share and discuss with one another in pairs & groups. Participants will be given the tools to craft the beginnings of up to six poems. The culminating activity will be a poet’s cafe highlighting and celebrating their poetry. Registration required.

This creative aging program is limited to those 55 and up.
