Inspired by Images: Ekphrastic Writing
Ekphrastic writing has been described as “taking the visual and transforming it to the verbal.” In this generative workshop, participants will engage with imaginative prompts, exploring images as a source of inspiration. Methods on how visual art can be a wellspring for new projects and infuse current ones with renewed energy will be discussed, and the session will also include a taste of SoulCollage®, an expressive arts method, through which we’ll create and write from our own images.
