Ekphrasis: Visual Art as Spaces for Poetry - Sat. 9.16.23 @ 10:30A

Instructor Teresa Funke & Marj Hahne

“Seeing comes before words,” says John Berger. How may we see (experience) a painting, a sculpture, an artist’s body of work, so that we can access our unrealized poems and build them beyond mere description of the visual artwork?  We will look at examples of ekphrastic poems as varying degrees of response, then move freely through the gallery to generate our own.  Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil. For ages 14 and up.
