There is a wordsmith somewhere in each of us. This experiential course will provide an opportunity to explore and make sense of the world through a variety of writing-focused expressive arts, including forms of poetry. Instruction will involve an interdisciplinary approach that embraces additional art modalities such as voice and music, movement and dance, visual arts, and drama as they inform and support the writing process. The value of expressive arts is that in the changing of modalities we shift perceptions and gain insight into the themes and issues in our lives and deepen our understanding of the metaphors and images that surround us. Poetry is often the exclamation mark of the experience. Writing-focused expressive arts are effective with a range of populations including children through seniors, populations with various challenges, and those whose first language is not English. This course is for those who wish to explore writing and poetry from a personal and/or professional perspective. A background in writing is not required. A willingness to explore through play with an open heart would be an asset.
