WORKSHOPS

VISUAL POETRY WORKSHOP led by Cindy Rinne
"WORDS OF LIFE,"
First Presbyterian Church, San Bernardino, CA. Participants ranging from age three and up came together in community to have fun writing poetry using visual prompts.

Collaboration

Each group used my artwork as a visual prompt. Each person in a group wrote a stanza and then combined them to form a poem. The poem is shared with the class.

Questioning Something in Nature

Each participant conducted an interview with an object in nature based on a photograph. Some of the poems were shared with the entire group and some poems read within the groups.

Collage and Walking Poem

All ages enjoyed creating collages of their favorite images and words cut from magazines. They wrote a poem pretending to take a journey through their collage. Sharing with the group was fun as everyone enjoyed hearing and seeing others' creative efforts.
