Craft visual poetry inspired by Frank Stella’s Stars, A Survey, with Ridgefield’s Poet Laureate and Aldrich Educator, Barb Jennes! In this interactive workshop for all ages, explore concrete poetry—poems that take on shapes to create visual impact—while writing poems of your own in 2-D and 3-D stellular patterns. Suggested materials will be emailed in advance; no previous poetry-writing experience necessary.
