This summer, The Ekphrastic Review started single-session, online writing workshops as an opportunity to gather together, learn more about visual art, build community, write, and have fun.
Each of the four sessions we have had so far has been very special. Lorette shares her passion for the stories behind paintings, and we do several engaging and open-ended writing exercises to fire up your creativity.
There is a surprise lineup of artworks each session, curated with the expansion of your ekphrastic practice in mind. There will always be a diverse spectrum of works to accommodate different tastes and challenge you with new ideas. Expect a range of styles and cultures.
We are introducing some themed workshops. Moon Gazing will focus on moon-themed artworks, and Ghost Stories, our Halloween session, will focus on ghosts in art history. Boo!
We are also introducing Wine and Art Write Nights. This is an opportunity for writers to relax with each other online and get creative. With the popularity of wine and paint nights, it seems fitting during the Covid isolation that writers who can no longer gather at the bar still get together. These will be chatty and relaxing but still full of amazing art anecdotes and inspiring exercises.
