In this Poetry and Art workshop, we will take Kunitz’s perceptions on poetry as a point of inspiration, engaging in exercises to help us “deep sea dive” using our imaginations and hearts as guides. Because our earliest perceptions were experienced not as words, but as images, we will find our way to language through the visual, using simple but powerful art materials and techniques to “turn our minds in another direction” and to serve as the bridge to poem-making. Through a series of exercises, we will dive into the writing process in ways that will likely be unfamiliar and generate surprising, possibly “messy” and rich results.

Whether you love hops, malts, or funky sours -- we'll have a super-special beer on our taplist for you! Each day will have a variety of different styles to enjoy, but Sunday will be "Sour Easter Sunday"; a new sour beer tapped every hour on the hour. Pucker up!
We'll be releasing the taplist via TWITTER leading up to the event, so be sure to follow us (at) tonysdartsaway or keep your eyes peeled on this event page for when we put up the whole list.
