Exploring Nature Through Poetry

Course Description:
Come explore the spirit of haiku, a form of Japanese poetry almost inseparable from nature. Learn about the true essence of haiku and how it is so much more than the syllabic form poem we are taught in elementary school. Listen to a reading of haiku by the old masters and modern poets and write your own haiku inspired by the world around you.

Materials Require For Students To Bring:
Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil to write with. Tablets & laptops also welcome, but please keep in mind that you may want to write or take notes while walking around to find inspiration.

Cost & Supply Fee:
Since I teach through art centers and community education centers course cost and supply fees vary depending on the location offering the class. Please see specific course listings below for detailed cost information.
