The Writing’s on the Wall
April 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Emily Thornton Calvo, a poet and artist, wanted an easy way to combine two art forms, so she developed “wall poems” and will show you how to do the same very thing. Whether you want to sell single copies of your poems by creating art prints or make original art, this demo will help you make the most of each word and every space.
Emily’s work has been published in numerous publications, as well as featured at venues including Loyola University, the Art Institute of Chicago, Women & Children First and the Poetry Slam at the Green Mill, CPL Harold Washington Library Center, The Art Center in Highland Park, the Elmhurst Art Museum and many Chicago galleries.
Open to teens age 12-18
