  • February 25: 13 Ways of Looking - Take inspiration from Cubist artworks and experiment with multiple points of view and different methods of description.
  • March 25: Synaesthesia - Experiment with mixing the senses in writing—exploring the taste of color, for example—in the modern & contemporary art galleries. Write quick gestures using color and shape as inspiration.
  • April 22: Myth and Fable - Try your hand at telling stories that explain the unexplainable.
  • May 27: Portraits - Write to define the character of self and mine the depths of others too using portraits in the European and American art collections as inspiration.
  • June 24: Haiku and Other Asian Forms - Celebrate the blossoming of summer (in just a few syllables) and learn the nuances of Asian poetry and more in the Asian art collections.

Free with museum admission; no reservations required.
