This event requires registration; see further details below.

Join artist, poet, and educator Lio Olin to learn about the long history of ekphrastic writing. Ekphrasis, from the Greek word for the written description of a visual work of art, has changed the way we approach and view visual art. The group will first gather in the modern and contemporary art galleries to take part in guided writing exercises about a work of your choice. That work will then provide inspiration for the creation of your own mixed-media collage.
The hands-on session will take place in the Materials Lab on the Lower Level.

$15 materials fee. Registration is required and space is limited; registration will open on this form, beginning on Saturday, November 25, at 10am. Materials fee must be paid to confirm registration. Please email am_register@harvard.edu or call 617-495-1440 to join the waitlist. Minimum age of 14; no previous experience required.
