Journaling Through Visual Poetry

Loading Events

Capture your thoughts and memories through poems, visual art, and the space between. First, we will explore the work of visual poets, poetry comics, and the sketchbooks of contemporary artists to expand our boundaries and find inspiration. We will then delve into poetic, visual, and sensory exercises to navigate a variety of journaling prompts. By the end of the workshop, you will have a solid start on a journal that is completely unique to your own style and methods of expression. No previous art or poetry experience required!

NO SET MEETING TIME: This workshop will take place over Moodle, which is an asynchronous forum based platform. The instructor will post a lesson and assignment every Monday, and participants have all week to log in and read the lessons/post assignments/comment on other classmates’ work. Shortly before the start date participants will recieve an email with login info. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.
