Discover how to make visual representations of poems with artist Megan Shaughnessy. Poetry has the ability to tell stories and generate images in our minds. This class helps put these images on paper by focusing on how to interpret a poem through the visual arts. Children use the elements of design (lines, color, shape, patterns, texture) to create images that respond to poems with emotion and energy. They also discuss how creating a visual representation deepens their understanding of poems and how individual interpretations of poetry differ by comparing and contrasting their classmates’ responses.
