NOTE: This camp is a hybrid camp. Students will spend the mornings, 9 am-12 pm, in-person at the Flower City Arts Center, 713 Monroe Avenue (see below for COVID safety protocols), then afternoons, 1:30-3 pm, on Zoom with Writers & Books
This collaboration between Writers & Books and the Flower City Arts Center provides a unique opportunity merging visual arts with creative writing. You will work with artists to handbuild a ceramic book—on which you will inscribe your own poem, make paper, learn to make different kinds of books, and use letterpress printing techniques to decorate them. With a writer, you will play with language, learning how to use image, metaphor, simile, alliteration, line breaks, and more to write your own poems. This camp is a real hands-on experience taught by professional artists and writers who share “tricks of the trade” in ceramics, book arts, poetry, and creative writing. The camp culminates with a virtual art show and poetry reading.
