The class will explore the exhibition for inspiration, write one or two poems about artworks, and get helpful feedback on their writing.


The workshop will be led by former Poet Laureate of Hampshire, UK, Brian Evans-Jones, who has taught workshops in America and Britain since 2005. All levels are welcome, including those who have never tried poetry before: Brian has helped many people take their first steps into poetry, as well as teaching experienced poets.
