Exercising the Mind's Eye: Writing & Drawing Workshop


Biggs Museum of American Art Sat, Nov 16 10:00 AM


Saturday | November 16, 2019 | 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

In the spirt of the interdisciplinary nature of photojournalism, the Biggs is partnering with local author Caroline Simpson for a writing workshop inspired by the Biggs’ collection. Participants will write and draw alongside artwork in the museum -- cartooning, drawing rudimentary portraits, illustrating, and creating original metaphors.

The class is designed for beginner and intermediate writers and artists alike. The workshop will end with a reading of Caroline’s illustrated poetry from her chapbook, Choose Your Own Adventure and Other Poems.


Member: $25 

Non-Member: $30


Must have six students to run the class. Refunds are only available if the class is cancelled. Register online here or call 302.674.2111

Each participant will receive a small sketchbook as part of their registration and drawing supplies will be made available.
