On Sunday afternoon, we had our second Sunday Session, a new series where we get together online to discuss art, and write together.
It was a wonderful opportunity to meet each other, discover stories in art history, and start or create new poems and small stories.
This week we looked behind the scenes at Van Gogh's favourite artist, Jean Francois Millet, and how Salvador Dali became obsessed with his painting, The Angelus. ˆWe also looked closer at a painting from our Women Artists ebook of prompts, and dissected the contents of a massive collage painting by African-American artist Raymond Saunders.
Our next workshop is scheduled for August 15. Join us!
August 15 Ekphrastic Writing Sessions
Let's gather monthly and spend Sunday writing poetry and flash fiction with creative, inspiring, and fun ekphrastic exercises.
Lorette will host this workshop series from 2 to 4 pm EST. She will discuss several paintings or other works of visual art in each session, from a wide range of artists and cultures. In addition to discovering more about art history and deepening your relationship with visual art, there will be a variety of writing exercises and approaches each session.
This will be a great opportunity for the ekphrastic community to meet and mingle and work together. Join us!
