Hope at Hand Poetry Workshop

Event Type: NONE
Age Group(s): Teen
Date: 9/1/2018
Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Time: 1:00 PM
 Each week, Hope at Hand will introduce different forms of published poetry that allow youth to dig deeper into metaphors and figurative language while fostering the concepts of choice and change. Participants read carefully selected poems, then connect the text to their personal situations. They write original poems that deepen their connections to the discussion and the text. Lessons are coupled with other art forms where youth can experience the joy that comes with successful achievement. Once the reading and analysis are completed, then the fun really begins; Participants transform their words into art using paint, color and/or mixed media.
