FREE | Ways of Seeing Image & Imagists: Part 2 (For BIPOC)
Knowledge of part one is not required for Part Two. In part two of the class, we will dig deeper into the cultural aspects of imagery and how our heritage influences our perceptions and observations. We will practice writing poems using visual symbolism, descriptive language, and the vernacular of our various communities. Readings, activities, and discussions will feature The Imagists, Lucille Clifton, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Ai.
March 21: Registration opens for free classes.
