This will be a generative class. We’ll read four poets on Monday, and then each day thereafter students will bring to class a poem, in imitation. By the end of the week, I promise you you’ll have four of the best poems you’ve ever written and a set of skills you otherwise wouldn’t have.

JOEL JANOWITZ returns to the Fine Arts Work Center to teach a workshop, WATERCOLOR: PAINTING LIGHT, June 10-15!

Save $50 with PROMO CODE: FACULTY50 (new registrations only)

Workshop Description:
Explore a range of strategies for painting with watercolor. Exercises will include mixing and layering washes, using a full value scale from light and dark, adjusting color, and working wet-in-wet. Students will also be encouraged to playfully explore the many surprises of watercolor as we build a working understanding of the medium. Class will work primarily from observation (still life, landscape and the model). Experienced students and those new to watercolor are welcome.

JOEL JANOWITZ has exhibited widely, showing recently at Clark University in “Water + Color,” also at Concord Art Center, and at the Schoolhouse Gallery, Provincetown. His work has been collected by numerous museums including the Whitney Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Harvard University Museums, and The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 2016 Janowitz received his fourth Artist’s Fellowship in painting from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. In 2013 he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Thich Nhat Hanh says that the work of meditation is to transform “compost into flowers.” In my experience, that is also the work of memoir. But how do we summon creative power in the face of our personal and community demons? This workshop will help you to re-vision these demons as a form of poetic compost. Writing memoir is a way for us to name, explore and re-shape our demons (zombies/traumas/destroyers) and use them to grow something powerful, even healing. Please bring an image of a relative/Ancestor (photo, painting/drawing), a blank notebook, and your favorite writing tools.

DEBORAH MIRANDA is the author of Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir (winner of the PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Literary Award), as well as three poetry collections. She is co-editor of Sovereign Erotics: An Anthology of Two-Spirit Literature and her collection of essays, The Hidden Stories of Isabel Meadows and Other California Indian Lacunae is under contract with U of Nebraska Press. Miranda is an enrolled member of the Ohlone-Costanoan Esselen Nation of California. As John Lucian Smith Jr. Professor of English at Washington and Lee University, Deborah teaches Creative Writing (poetry and memoir), composition, and literature of the margins (Native American, Chicana/o, LGBTQ, African American, Asian American, mixed-genre, experimental). #memoir #nonfiction #workshop #fineartsworkcenter #provincetown #summer #capecod #writers #literary #queer #indigenous #poets #mixedgenre #experimental #creativepower #healing #generative #ancestors #community
