Create a life mission statement.

Once we have honed our statements, we’ll print them on posters, tshirts, and maybe even some public walls!

Author Jennifer New leads the written inquiry + local artist and teacher Dan Peterson leads the print making. This class is a combined effort of Iowa Youth Writing Project and PS1.

Instructor: John Engelbrecht
Ages: Teens
Dates: Monday-Friday, July 23-27, 2018
Time: 1:00-4:00 pm

In this workshop we will look at language as a physical and visual force. Through short urban explorations in the downtown area, we will collectively create a repository of graphics, fonts, and language and build poetry and visual art from this database. We will map and reflect on the language that guides us through space and see the city not only as a collection of buildings but the building blocks of creative play and personal meaning. Students will create both writing and art over the course of the week, and participate in collaboratively producing a small, public mural.

After writing, we'll have the option to share what we've created and receive feedback.
