Learn to write inspired text with the From Paint to Poetry writing workshop at The Jung Center on Saturday, January 16, 2016.

The art of ekphrastic writing, which is the act of writing inspired by non-literary work, is a long standing tradition in the writing world.

Participants who will be instructed on the style will use famed abstract artist Mark Rothko’s paintings from his current Museum of Fine Arts retrospective as examples to create their own text.

Lead by HCC professor Addie Tsai and co-sponsored by the MFAH, the beginner-friendly workshop will have attendees writing inspired text in no time.
