Art and Poetry at the Preserve

Welcome spring and exercise your artistic muse in an Art and Poetry workshop at Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve! Learn how to capture the essence of the natural world using simple illustration and collage. Then transition into creating and composing short poetry following models, exercises and fresh ideas. Take a few hours for yourself and expect to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and friendly fun.

Art and writing exercises will be different on each date, so you may attend either or both workshops!

Marie Buckely (poetry) is an adjunct instructor at PCC and an instructor at the Walters Cultural Arts Center. She is an award winning poet and board member of the Oregon State Poetry Association.

Alice Hill (art) is an instructor at PNCA, Walters Cultural Art Center and the Portland Art Museum. She heads Rise Above – the art program for homeless teens in Hillsboro sponsored through the Hillsboro Community Arts.
