Summer Camp 2019
It simply makes life more beautiful!
Join us this summer for an intensive focus on poetry—the ever-present dialogue, the undeniable truths, and the endearing layer that accompanies every human experience.
Students will receive tips for developing their poetic mind (such as methods for seeing or other modes of observation). This will occur in a series of activities that highlight the aesthetic, emotional, and idiosyncratic nature of human experience. Students will capture and share their poetic compositions in at least one of many possible ways. The structure and delivery of any poem will be driven by the student’s own poetic voice. Poetry can be strongly personal but we will invite students to embrace ways of sharing their poetic point of view with others.
The content of each session is adapted according to the age-level of the group, but participants in all sessions will find the pathways of their poetic mind widened by this experience.
