Art as Inspiration: Beating the Writing Blues

Join us for our Art as Inspiration: Beating the Writing Blues teacher workshop featuring professional Delta blues musician Curtis Blues. Enjoy light refreshments, a guided tour of the collection, and a three-hour working session in the galleries with Mr. Blues. Using the Walters Art Museum as a catalyst for discussion and reflection, this master teaching artist will guide you through using blues music and writing processes to evoke powerful and personal connections between the art and the writer. As one of the earliest styles of blues music, Mississippi Delta Blues evokes common themes and central emotions in lyrics that are both introspective and universal. This is an ideal arts-integration workshop, focusing on the fusion of social studies, language, and visual arts. All techniques can be taken back to the classroom to use with students.
