Well-known muralist Yetti Frenkel is also a talented poet. The Southbridge Cultural Council is sponsoring Ms Frenkels presentation which will combine her art and her verse. In this workshop children learn about the haiku and tanka poetry forms and write their own poetry, and then illustrate their poem in a folding card. Children learn how to use simile and metaphor as inspiration for poetry, and principles of design such as scale, symbolism compared to literal imagery, and other ways to enhance visual communication.
For ages 9 and up. Please phone 508-764-5427 to learn more.
