Workshop: The Writer in the Museum, with Ruth Crocker


October 7, 2017
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Whether you are writing fiction or nonfiction, or want to get started with a writing project, a museum may be a rich source of material. Paintings, photographs and sculpture are full of symbols, ambiguities, and imagery with the potential to spark observation skills and memories. Perhaps you have a work in progress. Perhaps you have ideas but need incentive and encouragement to get them down on the page. Either way, this workshop, appropriate for all levels, will guide you into the process of using art as a stimulus for unlocking ideas.
Saturday, October 7, 1pm – 4pm
$45 Members / $60 Public
