This afternoon, I’m teaching a Collage Poetry Workshop for tweens and teens at the Muckleshoot Library in Auburn. I’ve gathered boxes and bags of fun collage materials including puzzle pieces, vintage scrap paper, and origami paper. We’re going to be assembling our collages and poetry on cards which can make great presents.
Collage Poetry Workshop is a hands-on workshop. In the workshop, we’ll look at some artistic collages and read poetry written by other young writers found in poetry books such as Paint Me Like I Am and Tell the World. Then, we’ll write our own poems inspired by quick and easy collages that we create.
Bring your creative ideas and let’s have a great afternoon of making poetry and art!
