Poet, author, and educator Nathan Richardson introduces students to “ekphrastic” poetry in this workshop, using visual art, written and spoken word, and physicality to fully engage students in the creative process. Students will craft poetry inspired by their favorite works, as Nathan guides them in critically analyzing thoughts and concepts in art to share their interpretations. As he teaches techniques used by spoken word artists such as gesture, inflection, and blocking, Nathan gets students on their feet to practice presenting their poetry to others.
