Exercising the Mind’s Eye, A Writing and Drawing Workshop @ Cooper Street, Camden, NJ
Why are so many writers drawn to visual art? Through generative exercises, this workshop explores how drawing can benefit one’s writing, by entering a similar openness, attention, and surrender. Participants will write and sketch alongside artwork, leaving with evocative poem and story starts. For beginners/intermediates.

Exercising the Mind’s Eye: A Virtual Writing and Drawing Workshop
This class is designed for writers and artists who are interested in exploring how writing and drawing can inform and inspire one another. Both art forms are side effects of entering a certain state of mind– a kind of openness, attention, and surrender. In this workshop, participants will write and draw alongside artwork in the Delaware Art Museum’s permanent collection– penning original metaphors and poems, as well as sketching, cartooning, and drawing rudimentary portraits. No skill level required for this creative play! This workshop will be presented on July 18, 2020 from 12:30-2pm as one of the breakout sessions at the Wilmington Writers Conference.
- WHEN: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
