May 23: Travels: From Abstraction to Actual*
This month, we’ll spend our time wandering through Abstract Expressionism from the Denver Art Museum, using the vibrant colors and forms as keys to unlock our imaginations. What is it that we want, or need, to express? Show up ready to write—and to be surprised where your creativity might lead you.
*Changed since the May/June On & Off the Wall printed; this is the new topic.
June 27: Expressing Ourselves: Inspiration Drawn from Shade: Clyfford Still/Mark Bradford
The great thing about abstract art is that it’s bold and captivating, and yet most works are non-representational. That is, they are not depictions of actual things. We’ll use these abstractions to force us toward expression—idea, emotion, philosophy, characters—and therefore into language and story. Come ready to be moved by the work of Clyfford Still and Mark Bradford.
