Writing in the Galleries
During this workshop students will engage with artworks on a deeper level through thoughtful looking and guided dialogue. On Saturday, each student will select a piece that elicits meaning or emotion and compose a creative writing piece based on their selected work. Students will compose sketches reflecting the work they chose which will be translated into prints. Sunday, students will create their prints to accompany their writing pieces and complete a work that tells a story through both image and text. Student’s work will then be displayed near their chosen artwork for family, friends, and visitors to enjoy.
