Art & Writing Workshop: Writing the Waves

Art & Writing Workshop: Writing the Waves

Wed, 06/12/2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Led by Artist-in-Residence: Lydia & Riley

This workshop will use the practice of ekphrasis — in which a piece of writing responds to another work of art — to explore oceanic concepts and themes.  We will consider exemplary work in this genre written both in prose (Michelle Cliff’s essay “Oblique Brilliance,” a reflection upon and dialogue with the visual art of Ellen Gallagher) and poetry (Howard Moss’ “Painting A Wave”) before undertaking our own experiments.
No experience needed; ages 15+
