with MELANIE RICK
FOR TEACHERS of GRADES 2-8
This workshop examines a process that teaches students to look, think, feel, inquire, talk, connect, and write. Beginning with a work of art, participants discover how to deeply analyze what they see. This analysis becomes a springboard for writing. Descriptive, carefully chosen words and various poetry tools work together to create vivid images that express thoughts and feelings, while synthesizing the work of art. This work has motivated learners of all ages to view the world as artists and poets!
