Summer Camp

Brushes and Rhymes: Slam Poetry and Action Painting

Brushes and Rhymes: Slam Poetry and Action Painting

Calling all writers, journal junkies, and graffiti enthusiasts! Our newest Teen Camp experience combines creative writing and poetry performance with wild-style painting and collage. Join slam poets and mixed media painters on this journey through the power and possibilities of the spoken and visual word. Whether your teen has a blooming interest in poetry, rap lyrics, or bold fonts and graphics, this experimental five-day workshop will help them hone their skills in creative writing and design. Throughout the week, we will work on a series of writing, journaling, and sketchbook exercises; practice speaking and presenting in front of small groups, and work collaboratively on one large mixed media painting. The group will also explore the wall poems and murals of Uptown Charlotte’s many parks and cultural spaces. Our week will culminate in a group show and poetry slam performance at our studio space at Spirit Square.
