Online: Souls of Forgotten Objects – Writing Exploration
An Online Workshop with Brian Evans-Jones

Online via Zoom | Saturday, December 11, 2021 | 9:00 am-12:00 pm, Arizona Time

Few things stimulate thought and ideas as powerfully as great art viewed in person. This workshop will take you on an intensive writer’s journey around the “Souls of Forgotten Objects” exhibition at the Sedona Arts Center, using photos of the artworks to inspire your own writing. You’ll discover new ways of looking at found objects and the art that has been made of them, then use this to launch into your own poetry, nonfiction, or fiction. You’ll also have the opportunity to incorporate your own found objects and found words into your writing, drawing on the techniques you see in the exhibition to develop your creative skills and techniques.

Suitable for all levels of experience.

You will need to access this workshop via Zoom, so be sure you have the program already installed in your computer or tablet before the workshop begins.  Enrolled students will receive a Zoom link emailed to you a day or two before the workshop, so keep an eye on your email inbox.

Very useful workshop. Well run—good value. Brian's depth of experience proved invaluable.

A satisfying day. Surpassed the usual workshop. I enjoyed the experience and felt I had worked hard and learned something of value.

I loved it and found it so useful to fulfil a passion I've always wanted to explore.

Great workshop, really enjoyable and well executed!

Good thorough day with appropriate level of challenge
