Find Yourself This Fall Through Nature Art & Lyric Poetry


Join me online in Oasis art classes and Cosmos poetry this fall as ArtCreateWrite transitions to Online Webinar Workshops, and opens doors to all–adults, youth, children. Step out of world chaos for a few moments every week, find Oasis in doing art–even if you have never spent time sketching or painting before; knock on the doors of the ever regenerative Cosmos with your own lyric poems, guided by the words of poets resonating to us across centuries. This Fall’s offerings are for adults/lifelong learners/continuing-ed students of any age.

redbud-iOasis/Late Summer Sketch: Mark the passing of summer with botanical sketches of late summer flowers, seedheads, reeds, and grass, play with color using watercolor pencils. Dip in to the work of master botanical artists, find your own artistic style as you begin to sketch and color the continuous beauty of the natural world around you. A 3-week online workshop where we’ll sketch & color from wherever we are in the world. Starts Sep 22.

SaraTeasdale2SaraTCosmos/Find Yourself in Lyric Poetry: Drawn to poetry all your life but don’t know who to read or how to enter the world of poetry yourself? Poets have sought to find themselves through language and music across the world for ages. Find yourself through lyric poems of Self and Nature this fall in an 8-week online workshop (half a semester) where we’ll read the work of American, English, European, Asian, Indigenous poets across time in an Intro to Lyric Poetry course touching on the basics of rhythm, music, lineation, theme, soul in the creation of poetry. Starts Sep 24.

ArtCreateWrite seeks to build on the Art, Creative Writing, and Natural Science creativity workshop foundation set in place by The Wishing Well, an after-school and summer-camp workshop series held from 2012 to 2016 at a creativity workshop studio in the author’s home in Quincy, Massachusetts where numbers of elementary school-age children enjoyed learning about and expressing themselves in art, fiction, poetry, Natural Science, astronomy, mythology, sacred geometry, and new consciousness science.
