Art begets art!

Spontaneity, individual expression, and emotion are key elements of the visual art featured in the special exhibition Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today, as well as in the work of poets.

D.C.-based poet Danielle Badra shares her experience writing poetry in direct response to a variety of art forms. This workshop provides the tools and time for participants to stretch their poetic muscles and use the works on view in Magnetic Fields as the inspiration for their own written creations.

Participants will:

Explore poetry as an art form.
Find inspiration in Magnetic Fields.
Write original poems in response to abstract art.
Share their work with workshop participants.
Take home their creations and a studio to go.
All levels of experience are welcome. This workshop is designed to instruct and engage audiences 13 and older. Materials, instruction, and inspiration will be provided.
