Class Experience

Do you write poetry? Do you like to make short videos or want to learn how? This class is for you! In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the basics of making video poetry. You'll start by watching some video poems, read and write poetry, develop ideas for your videos, and then learn how to use software and dive into the video and recording process to create a video using our own original poems or a favorite published poem of your choice. You might even get to see your work on the big screen! Completed videos can be submitted to the Midwest Video Poetry Festival for screening in October.

This free workshop is a Collaboration between Arts + Literature Laboratory and The Bubbler at Madison Public Library. 

Age: 12 - 17 yrs

Registration

This hands-on workshop is a 7-part series on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting 4/26 and ending 5/17. You should plan to attend as many sessions as possible because each class builds on the previous. Register now.

We are so excited to host this rescheduled event from September 2021! Join us for this educational and engaging session with Dexter Patterson, co-founder of the BIPOC Birding Club of Wisconsin.

Dexter will share his tips and tricks for birding and talk about how to have more success and more fun when you go birding. He’ll talk about his experiences and offer practical and playful advice birders can use to get the most out of their next trip. In true Wisco Birder fashion, expect at least one birding game, a selfie, and a couple of entertaining bird nerd moments. You won't want to miss it!

Known on social media as the Wisco Birder, Dexter is on a mission to spread as much joy as possible by making his new hobby welcoming for all birders around the state. His Instagram followers love his energetic and exciting videos that feature him singing and dancing through the woods, finding stunning birds throughout the state, and taking gorgeous photos.
