What you'll learn in this kids writing class:

Do you like spending time with knights, jewels, tombs, and unicorns? Do you like to look at a painting and imagine a story behind it? Well then, this adventure is for you! Come look and wonder, think and sketch, imagine and create poems and stories based on art.

This new writing workshop will explore our neighborhood treasures: Fort Tryon Park and the Cloisters, to write ekphrastic poetry. Ekphrastic means “description” in Greek. Ekphrastic poetry is a vivid description of a scene or work of art-usually painting, photographs, or statues. Each week we will travel through the park to the Cloisters, noting our surroundings, sketching in our journals, looking at art, and writing poems and stories based on what we experience.

This workshop will culminate in publication in a print anthology. Pickup and drop-off will take place at PS/IS 187 at 349 Cabrini Boulevard NYC 10033, not the Cornerstone Center. If you would prefer to meet the group at the Cloisters, please email [email protected]
