What is poetry? What is art? But more importantly, how do we blur these lines? In these workshops feel free to mix mediums, words and genres to create art, poetry or both! Bring in your own work or start something entirely new! Chidera will guide participants as they create their own abstract works that mix words and images to tell a story.
