You will have access to a class chat forum where you can share work, comment and ask questions. Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll receive instructions about how to access the class. 

To take this class, you need a microphone and camera enabled computer OR an IPad /smart tablet OR a smart phone (android or IOS) and a strong internet connection.

This Verbal/Visual Connection will focus on the acrostic poem. The acrostic poem begins each line with a letter that spells out a specific word or words, a gentle introduction to combining imagery and text. Artist Larry Calkins will lead the collage portion of each session, offering instruction, assignments and feedback while writer Dianne Aprile will lead the writing portion of each session with prompts and exercises focused on a particular brief form to be written in class.
