COLLAGE STORYTELLING WITH VERN MARTIN-IVIE
Join us for a FREE youth art drop-in! Open to youth aged 15-25, materials and snacks are provided during the workshop.
Our workshop will begin with some brief poetry writing exercises, and then we will use those words as inspiration and a launch point into phase two of the workshop, which would be collage. Using magazines and other paper materials, the attendees can make a collage that matches the theme of their poems and chose to implement the words of their poems from the first phase of the workshop, or just follow the theme.
Reservations are required for this event and all materials will be provided.
If you have any questions, please email us! 🙂 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The wearing of masks during this event is not mandatory, but it is encouraged.
