Look for this workshop
next season!

In this workshop, we’ll be smashing together the best parts of drawing and writing to create beautiful pieces of art . . . out of words! We see text combined with pictures everywhere, from greeting cards to comic books to pieces of art in a museum. We will look at the properties of these pieces, such as the size, color, and form of the text, and investigate why they are well suited (or maybe not so well suited) to the meaning of the word they’re decorating. Does this word look lifeless? AUTHORITATIVE? e.x.t.r.a.t.e.r.r.e.s.t.r.i.a.l?

We’ll be exploring these concepts by creating fun, silly poems filled with juicy descriptive words, and then illustrating them to make them speak volumes! Students can expect to leave with a frame-worthy piece of found poetry.
