*Writing Places: Creative Excursions in and around Portland*

*In Response: Poems on Art**   (course #352053)*
Lisa Radon
/Saturday, August 6, 12:00 -- 4:00 pm/

Spend an afternoon visiting galleries in Portland's Pearl District, 
making poems in response to and in conversation with works of 
contemporary art. Poet, artist, and arts writer Lisa Radon will guide 
you beyond straightforward description, to take a more expansive view of 
what a poetic response to a work of art might be --- stoking the fire 
with related readings, writing experiments and prompts, and a tuning in 
to your own five senses.

For more information, or to register, call 503-823-2787, or go to

Parks programs. (To download a complete course schedule, go to 
www.multnomahartscenter.org -- the fall schedule should be available in 
a couple of weeks.)


*Upcoming excursions:*
/*Aug. 27*  Borrowed Scenery/ (Portland Japanese Garden) -- David Abel

/The excursion leaders reflect Portland's avant-garde writing community 
and offer unique prose and poetry writing exercises at each place.  It's 
great intellectual stimulation . . . If you want to get a different 
perspective of the metro area, I highly recommend signing up for one or 
more./ -- Artist and writer Paula McNamee
