The Wickford Art Association will be hosting a children's poetry and painting workshop on Monday, February 18, 2019 from 10 AM to 1:30 PM. The workshop is presented by Page & Palette, Teaching Children’s Authors of RI.
Children will work with local independent children’s authors and illustrators in this creative writing and painting workshop. Children attending the workshop will learn about how to generate their ideas into both freestyle and rhyming poems, and will create a watercolor inspired by their own poem. Children will look to famous poets such as Shel Silverstein and artists such as Georgia O’Keefe for inspiration.
Participating authors and illustrators are Denise Flagg, Kerri Gaulin Sue Greco, Donna McCarthy and Theresa Schimmel. All of the authors are also members of the Association of Rhode Island Authors.
Parents may register their children online or at the Wickford Art Association. A non-refundable registration fee is $10.00 and includes all materials and snacks. The author’s will be available to sell and sign books after the program. Seating is limited. It's going to be a lot of fun - sign up now!
