Artists and Writers Unite!

Loading Events

Writers from The Writer’s Center will unite with visual artists at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center in Hyattsville, MD, to learn the ins and outs of collaborative partnerships and practice making work together. Participants will first get to know one another’s creative and work styles, create new work drawing on one another’s art and ideas, and outline important conversations. After that, the group will divide into pairs and create a zine in which each page represents a collaboration between artists and writers in the class. This workshop is designed to let your expertise determine the outcome—with artists and writers drawing from their respective skills and interests to develop a project. Participants will leave with a co-created zine, along with new skills in collaboration and new connections across the great media divide. This workshop will meet at The Writer’s Center (4508 Walsh St. Bethesda, MD 20815) on May 18th, and at Pyramid Atlantic (4318 Gallatin St, Hyattsville, MD 20781) on May 25th and 26th.
