Drop-In Writing Sessions

Occurs every month on the fourth Tuesday
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - 1:00pm3:00pm
Hamilton Building - Level 1
Included in general admission.

Monthly program on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

Pick up a pencil and spark your creative interests in these informal writing sessions.  With the help of a DAM instructor, try your hand at a new writing topic every month, while visiting various museum galleries. 

Meet in the El Pomar Grand Atrium of the Hamilton Building, level 1. All experience levels welcome, bring your own supplies or use one of our notebooks.

  • July 22: Writing the West - Using iconic images of Western lore as springboards, consider the idea of the West and write stories that use the West as both place and concept.
  • August 26: Character and Action - Even though the images in the exhibition Daniel Sprick's Fictions: Recent Works are frozen in time, the focus of today’s session is character and action—two of the integral building blocks to all good storytelling, no matter the genre.
  • September 23: Story in Image - Try your hand at the most visually-oriented type of writing—the screenplay. Get an introduction to the basic elements of screenplay form and write some of our own in the photography galleries.
  • October 28: Flash Form - Using contemporary art as inspiration, play with your own sense of contemporary form with writings such as flash fiction, the hermit crab, and collage.

Free with museum admission; no reservations required.
