× Instructor: Hanan Hazime
Jan 19- Mar 23
Wednesday 6PM-8PM

In this course, we will learn about various types of poetry and poetic techniques using an interdisciplinary approach that pairs poetry with other forms of art, such as visual arts or music. Participants will be given fun, introspective prompts that focus on self-love, self-care, and coming together as a community.

Materials: Something to write on/with (notebook, paper, pen, or computer).

Something to create visual arts with (example: draw/paint/collage). Whatever folks have readily accessible in their house or mediums they already work with: some examples would be: markers, paint, pastels, clay, coloured pencils, scissors, glue, old magazines, recycled materials, or a digital art making program.

Something to create sound/music with: musical instrument (any kind) or household objects that can be used to create sound (eg. filling a jar with some pebbles to create a shaker, using spoons on a cooking pot as a drum). A digital sound making program is okay too.
