Have you always wanted to write poetry but you’re not sure how? In this fun and creative class led by CFCArts teaching artist Chris Hicks, you’ll use the words of others to create a work of your own. You will create poems from “found” words and phrases cut from magazines and glued together on a sheet of paper. At the end, you’ll be surprised how this project comes together to create inspiring and meaningful poetry. Come explore and create your own unique piece of Found Poetry.

This program is presented by CFC Arts and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
