Adventures in Word & Image Afternoon

$124

with Jodi Paloni

Calendar Apr 2, 2019 at 3:30 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Note: The end date for this class listed in our Winter/Spring brochure was incorrect. The correct end date is 4/30.

Some say “April is the cruelest month…” but maybe not so cruel if you have something fun and engaging to look forward to. In this four-week series, we’ll delve into the work of fearless writing and image-making in the spirit of “creating with the brakes off.” Immersing in writing prompts, paint and paper projects, and simple assemblages will help us explore ways in which the written word may be embedded into art and how art can inspire us to write. 

Jodi Paloni is the author of the linked story collection, They Could Live With Themselves, a two-time finalist for the Maine Literary Awards and IPPY Silver Medalist. She has an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
