Paint & Write
Saturday, February 25th @ 2:00PM
For this workshop, we’ll discuss ekphrasis, or poems and stories that reference art, but this time with a twist! Attendees will spend the first half of the workshop creating artwork of their very own. After their masterpieces are complete, there will be an art swap where attendees write a story or poem about their peer’s artwork. This event is family-friendly, beginner-friendly (however, we’re pretty sure experienced writers would have fun with this too!), and open to the public.
