Sketching Portraits with Words

Posted on

It was a wild success!

18 people came to write.  Jane Roy Brown asked us to focus on one portrait in the gallery and first to simply describe what we saw, then to amplify with what what we felt or imagined.  And then we had to pick another portrait in the gallery and create a dialogue between our two candidates.  Several writers volunteered to read what they had written.  It was astounding.  The room came alive around us with “real feeling” personalities.
