ART 101: Writer's Workshop | Poetry + the Physical Form

Saturday April 10

1:00 PM  –  5:00 PM



Led by celebrated local writers, the Art 101: Writer's Workshop series uses art as a starting point for fun and creative writing projects. Participants explore the elements of writing and experience works of art through a different lens.


Join award-winning author, Laleh Khadivi, and explore the exhibit Barring Freedom through history, spatial orientation, artistic intent, and most importantly, through poetry and prose. We will discuss the work, the sensations it evokes, and then take time to follow our curiosity about the work and the artist. In this workshop, as with most creative endeavors, the process is just as valuable as the product. Laleh Khadivi is a novelist and essayist, and recipient of several awards including the Whiting Award and an NEA grant. Khadivi teaches in the MFA program at the University of San Francisco.


$15 ($10 Members). Workshops are designed for all skill levels. This virtual workshop will take place over ZOOM; advance registration is required.
