Visual art can offer rich inspiration for writing, just as writing can deepen your connection to a work of art. Join Mary Hall Surface, playwright, teaching artist and popular creative writing instructor for the Smithsonian Associates, the National Gallery of Art and more, for a close look at Romare Bearden’s Tomorrow I May be Far Away and Joan Miro’s The Farm. Discover how memory and metaphors inform the paintings and can inspire your own memoir writing. Participants engage with the art through multi-sensory exploration, word sketching, and diverse writing prompts crafted to discover inspiring aspects of the painting and to uncover new potentials as writers. Designed for the curious and writers of all forms. Two Saturdays: April 17 and 24, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m EST Online Class.
