Art and Haiku Poetry Workshop (Ages 7-9, 1 session)
In this workshop for 2nd and 3rd graders, we read Haiku poems and then discuss the craft of writing poetry in this format. Haiku poetry is a Japanese form of poetry that uses three lines to express ideas about nature. 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.
