Paint & Write Class


An exciting take on ekphrastic writing, Paint & Write class joins together visual art and creative writing. Joining our teaching team is art teacher Jeff Cowan, owner of Twisted Bristles, a creative art-making business.

In each class, writers will paint using one of Jeff’s painting techniques. Following the painting, writers will stop at several art pieces, including their own, and do a timed writing exercise in response to the art. Writers will be given prompts to help get the creative writing juices flowing. This is a real-time paint and write class that blends visual art and creative writing in a unique and exciting way!

There are three classes, and therefore, writers will create three different paintings, and several different writing pieces per week. This is a class for writers who want to up their creativity game and add visual art to their repertoire of talents. Paintings will need time to dry, so writers can pick them up the following week in class or discuss a time for pick-up. No visual art or creative writing experience necessary! Open hearts and open minds welcome!

All visual art and writing supplies are included. Please wear comfortable clothing that may or may not get dirty – that’s up to you!

As always, light snacks and beverages are also included in the class.
