Poetry and Collage Making
Some say that a picture is worth a thousand words. At the very least, a picture can be a catalyst for some great writing! Arts and crafts and poetry intersect in this workshop for young writers. We will learn about some of the key elements of poetry writing and practice writing poems using pictures as our inspiration. We will also make collages using scraps from old magazines, construction paper, and your own poems!
This workshop is intended for ages 6-11
