Inspiration & Collaboration for Artists, Musicians & Writers


with Pat Casey

Calendar May 2, 2020 at 9 am, runs for 1 week

Ekphrasis is a little-known word, but a well-known theme: Art inspires art. Join us for a discussion of ekphrasis, most often recognized as visual art (i.e., painting) which inspires writing (i.e., poetry). But let’s consider all the arts—painting, drawing, sculpture, music, poetry, essays, mixed media. The possibilities are endless. If you’re a writer, bring your laptop or paper and pen, and/or bring a piece you want to read. If you’re an artist, bring your materials and/or examples to share your work. If you are a musician, bring your music and/or instrument. Whoever you are, if you have an interest in the arts, this workshop will be fun and inspirational. Instructor Pat Casey will lead a discussion and bring examples of ekphrastic works. This is a great workshop if you’re interested in collaborating with another artist or writer, or if you have skills in multiple arts and want to see how you can bring them together. Email the instructor if you have questions: Please include the course title in the subject line. No discounts.
