The Location Series: The Flower is a Symbol

Where: Phipps Conservatory 

Who/When: 
Students in grades 9-12: (check back soon)
Students in grades 6-8: Saturday July 18, 2-4:30

What: Flowers have long been symbols of art and poetry. In this class students will read and discuss model texts that take the flower as inspiration. We will tour Phipps together, searching out the perfect plant for creative inspiration. Students will then have time to work independently on a poem or flash fiction story. During the final hour, students share what they wrote with one another and provide constructive feedback. Students have the option of sending a typed draft to Sarah and Jeff for additional feedback, in the weeks after the class concludes. Class size is limited, so sign up soon!

Cost: $35 per student; price includes admission to Phipps Conservatory
