Clay and the Writing Process
Date: February 7 2013 5:00pm - 7:30pm Location: South Chapel - Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
This workshop has been cancelled.
Working with writing is like working with clay. In this workshop participants will use visual storytelling through the sculpture process to facilitate crafting with words.
Participants will use clay to explore how the push and pull and the adding and subtracting, found in the process of working with one’s hands, can strongly inform the crafting process of story writing, and help open the imaginative process in our K-12 students. No art experience or “talent” necessary.
This workshop is part of our 2012-2013 Workshop Series.
Complimentary coffee and tea will be served.
