Artists With Attitude

  • 308 Bowery New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

Hey Writers!

For our third meeting, we will take inspiration from ashcan art and create a landscape of New York City! We will sketch using charcoal pencils, then cut and glue different words and pictures from magazines to create a collage. Underneath, we will write our poem from last session. It is the perfect blend of art and poetry to gift someone for the holidays, or to hang on your wall as decor. All supplies will be provided for!

Assignment due this session:

  • Bring your poem on a place you are familiar with in NY

  • Bring 1-2 magazines to cut for the collage, or have pieces cut out in an envelope that relates to NYC and your poem

  • New members must have the poem written before attending the meeting

This meeting will be hosted by Stacey Zerilli
