This session combines poetry with visual arts.  We’ll look at how different artists and poets approach the creative process in making their work.  These discoveries will serve as jumping off points for our own responses, whether it’s writing a poem, or making a collage, a drawing, or a mixed media piece.  This class is intended for DC Residents age 60 plus. Please register with Mimi Nguyen (my.nguyen@dc.gov) (202) 724-8698. (Artwork by Marie Pavlicek-Wehrli)
