Basquiat: an ekphrastic discovery workshop
Join us on Tuesday July 19 from 3 to 5 PM Eastern Standard Time for an ekphrastic discovery workshop on the life and art of Jean Michel Basquiat.
Basquiat's iconic graffiti-style urban imagery and fascinating body of work are a playground for our imagination. We will learn about Basquiat, his life, and his art. We will use his images in some writing gym exercises to unlock fun possibilities for writing, and as prompts directing us to conjure new poems or stories.
Doors open at 2.45 PM EST, for those who wish to meet and mingle.
We prefer to end our workshops organically after our last discussion and exercise, so they may go overtime.
No refunds for cancellations, sorry. We will happily move you to a future workshop if you cannot attend.
Our workshops are all about community, creativity, and conversation! We encourage discussion and sharing. We strive for an environment that is both challenging and supportive, to grow your writing practice in unexpected directions.
