In this collaboration between Writers & Books and the Flower City Arts Center, you’ll have a unique opportunity to merge visual arts with creative writing. You will handbuild a ceramic book, write pottery-inspired poems, interview real artists, make paper, and use a letterpress to print the words you have written. This camp will be a real hands-on experience taught by professional artists and writers at both the Flower City Arts Center (on Monroe Ave in the old fire station) and Writers & Books (on University Ave in the old police station). During the lunch hour, students will walk from Writers & Books to Flower City Arts Center. On Friday, there will be an art show and poetry reading for friends and families.
