Art and Concrete Poetry Workshop (Ages 7-9, 1 session)
For 2nd and 3rd graders. We read Concrete poems and then discuss the craft of writing poetry in this format. Concrete poems are poems that use words and pictures to express ideas. After generating ideas, we create artwork using different watercolor and crayon resist techniques. Students create artwork to express their poetry ideas and write poems. Every child will have one or more artworks and poems to take home with them.
