Get ready to experiment with abstract shapes, vibrant colors, and inventive layouts, experimenting with design and composition. You’ll learn how to sharpen your storytelling skills and create your own visual language. We’ll dive into the world of two-dimensional art using materials including pen and ink, watercolor pencils, and even digital drawing to transform text into vibrant poetry comic illustrations. Feel like bringing your favorite poem to the party? Awesome! Or, if you’re in the mood for inspiration, we’ve got a treasure chest of poems by local wordsmiths to light up your creative spark. Your creativity knows no bounds!
