Adult Classes in Poetry and Drawing at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts

My dear friend and amazing writer Sarah Leavens is teaching two classes for Pittsburgh Center for the Arts this spring. Sarah is the Out-of-the-Forge Writer-in-Residence in Braddock who has extensive knowledge in  fine arts, poetry, creative nonfiction, and bookbinding, among other things. Her recent work has appeared in Fourth River, The Diverse Arts Press and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and is forthcoming from Weave and So to Speak. If you are looking for a great writing class or an intermediate drawing class, I highly recommend you sign up hers, both of which begin next week. Here's a synopsis below. More details on the PCA site.

Essential Poetry
April 1-May 20, Mondays 6:30-9:30pm
Level: All
Poetry is not a literary secret society. This genre, with its distilled language and imagery, often intimidates writers and non-writers alike, but in this class we will unpack it, uncovering the essentials of reading and writing poetry—and what makes poetry essential to our lives.

Intermediate Drawing 
April 3-May 22, Wednesdays 6:30-9:30pm
Level: Intermediate
Using a variety of drawing materials, students will develop keener observation skills, strengthen their ability to express themselves and be encouraged to further develop a personal style and aesthetic.
