TIME: 02:30 pm - 04:30 pm
There is so much going on right now—things to look forward to, things to worry about, things that are changing. Sometimes it can be hard to find the space for expressing your thoughts and ideas in a creative format, and yet doing so can make you feel much more connected to yourself and the people around you. Join this series of three Sunday afternoon workshops focused on self-expression and creative fun through writing and the arts. Draw upon all of your senses to feel more alive and in the moment.
Use objects and sensory materials to help generate creativity and develop group connections. Write your own stories and poems, collaborate on group poems, and engage in energizing improvisational and experiential activities to loosen up your minds and help ideas flow more freely. The class also brings in nature and find ways to celebrate the change in seasons and the promise of more light. No prior writing experience is needed—just a willingness to try new ideas and be a supportive member of the class. Meet virtually on Zoom with the possibility of meeting in-person when the weather gets warmer. (Remote learning will remain an option even during in-person meetings.)
The Writing Out Loud Workshops are part of a series of writing workshops on March 7, April 11 and May 16. Students have the option to sign up for one, two or all three sessions. More specific directions for each session are provided once a student is signed up.
For qualifying students, financial aid is available. No financial barriers should prevent an interested and curious student from joining the class.
