Lunch Poems

by Lauren Rudewicz and David Hutcheson, 826michigan
Students will explore memories of food and learn how those memories intersect with art. From these connections, students will write poems and expand their understanding of what can inspire poetry.

When, Where, and Who Are Poems?

This session will introduce the idea that poems can be reflections of ourselves, even if we choose a different subject for that representation, like painter Frida Kahlo did with her self-portraits.
What Your Students Will Learn
