Art and Narrative Writing (Also Advertised as Art and Creative Writing) Wednesdays (6): August 3, 10, 17*, 24, 31 Time: 1:30 to 3:00 PM Where: Pauline Espinosa Community Hall (formerly known as the Rec Hall) - *(Dunbar Recreation Center on August 17) Cost: $25.00
Different art forms can feed on each other and by engaging in several art forms, you’ll find your creativity expands. In this class, we will combine art with writing to dig deeper into our own personal lives. In each class we will focus on a specific artist by learning about their lives and viewing pieces of their art. After exploring their world, we will create a piece of art mimicking their style. Then we will write a short piece about how our lives connect to the art we created. Be warned - This class isn’t for people who want to become painting masters or hang their work in a museum, rather this class is for people wanting to be creative, explore where their creative ideas come from in their life, and have a lot of fun!
Supplies will be provided!
