In the Eye of the Beholder: A Writing Workshop for Teachers

November 2, Saturday, 10-1 p.m.

“Creativity is Contagious.”
                                                                  —Albert Einstein

Creativity reveals itself in many forms and across all ages. Through facilitated art appreciation and written expression, students and adults alike can enhance their skills and interests. 

This workshop with writer Elayne Clift is designed to help teachers encourage creative expression among their students. Writing prompts based on BMAC’s current exhibits will provide a model for writing activities for teachers to use later with students. The techniques used in this workshop all lend themselves to adaptation for younger audiences who, along with their teachers, will discover the pleasure of art that inspires the written word.

 Clift is an award-winning writer, journalist, and Vermont Humanities Council Scholar. She is a regular columnist for the Keene Sentinel and The Commons, a reviewer for The New York Journal of Books, and a contributor to Artscope Magazine. Her work has appeared in The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Christian Science Monitor, and The Chronicle of Higher Education. She is the author of a novel, Hester’s Daughters (2012), a collection of short stories, Children of the Chalet (2014), and Around the World in Fifty Years: Travel Tales from a Not So Innocent Abroad (2019).
