Virtual Creative Writing & Drawing Workshop: Exercising the Mind's Eye
Saturday | May 30, 2020 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST

Presented via Zoom, our introductory digital workshop, Exercising the Mind’s Eye, is designed for writers and artists who are interested in exploring how writing and drawing can inform and inspire one another. Both art forms are side effects of entering a certain state of mind - a kind of openness, attention and surrender.

In this workshop, participants will write and draw, penning original metaphors and poems, as well as sketching, cartooning, and drawing rudimentary portraits. No skill level required for this creative play!

The workshop will conclude with a reading of Instructor Carrie Simpson’s illustrated poetry from her chapbook, Choose Your Own Adventure and Other Poems. Simpson’s work will be on exhibition beginning June 5, as part of our Award Winners: XX Exhibition.

Member-exclusive registration period: May 7-13.

Open to Non-Members on May 14.

Registration Fee
Members: $8
Non-Members: $10
