Course Description:

The link between poetry and art is ripe for exploration–In this workshop we will write and use ekphrastic poetry–poems written and inspired by works of art, as a departure point for your poems. Some of the poetic forms we'll review may include skinny, haiku, tanka, and cherita. We’ll look at contemporary and historical art, and images of art you share, we will create both poems inspired by art and sketches inspired by poetry. Bring to class: writing journal/sketchbook, pencils, and erasers, watercolors, watercolor or regular inks, watercolor ink, brushes, pen holders and nibs.
