Visual Inspiration: Hugo at the Henry
Thursday, February 20, 2014, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Member Price: $220.50
General Public Price: $245.00
Using visual art as a springboard for diving into prose writing, class members will mine the inspiration of images to unearth new prose or add unexpected meaning and direction to works in progress. Students can search the Henry’s digital archive and request works from the permanent collection not currently on view. For even more creative percolation, we’ll read published works inspired by visual art. Exercises, readings, and discussions will cover the writing process, character, story, landscape (internal and external), and style. Students will have the option to workshop one short-short story or essay. This class series is a partnership between Hugo House and the Henry.
Meets: Thursdays, January 30 -March 13, 6-8 p.m. (no class on February 27)
PLEASE NOTE: This class meets weekly at the Henry Art Gallery.
