Transform poetry into beautiful works of art. Create calligrammes -- poems in which the words are arranged to create images -- by using “found” texts like magazine articles, junk mail, and news clippings to create abstract and visually impactful poems. Decorate your final work with different media like ink, pens, and colored pencils. Please bring some of your favorite poems or prose to include!

About the instructor, Dana Harel:

Dana Harel was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel. She received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Harel’s drawings evolve organically, fusing themes of man and environment. Her understanding of form through architecture leads to transformative depictions of human and animal, offering us an idea and not solution to our own internal struggle. Harel's exhibitions have appeared in galleries around the world.
