Painting and Poetry Workshop with Cait Wait and K A Nelson

To coincide with their unique collaborative exhibition ‘A Chosen Life’, Cait Wait and Kerrie Nelson are facilitating a painting and poetry workshop at The Residency on Saturday 24th October.

The structure of the workshop will be two x two-hour blocks.

Participants will work with either Cait or Kerrie for two hours in the morning to produce small artworks or poems.

After lunch the two groups will swap places, mingle or continue working in the art form they prefer. The focus of the workshop can be loosely termed ‘ekphrastic’. The Greeks coined the term, which simply means one art form informing another. Think John Keats’ Ode to a Grecian Urn!

Participants are asked to bring a small picture or object that they think is beautiful, pen and paper. All other materials will be supplied.

We think everyone participating will have the opportunity to write and paint if they wish, and there will be a mini ‘exhibition’ of art and ‘performance’ of poetry at the end of the day.

The Residency is located on the corner of Parsons and Hartley streets.

DATE: Sat 24th Oct
TIME: 10am – 4pm
COST: $40 – includes materials and morning tea
