Tuesday, July 26, 1:00 to 3:00 PM
@Denver Art Museum, 100 14th Avenue, Hamilton Building - Level 1
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. Rhythm in Words—This month is all about poetic form—often a kind of ‘dance’ with words. In the Rhythm & Roots: Dance in American Art special exhibit we’ll explore some forms, and then try them out, including (perhaps) the sonnet, triolet, pantoum, and more. Free with museum admission. No reservations required.
