The El Paso Museum of History is pleased to present Monica Gomez in a special hands-on writing workshop entitled What Do YOU Think It Means?on Saturday, May 12, 2012 beginning at 2 p.m.
This educational and inspirational 2-hour workshop lets you learn and write about images created by the greats – from Renoir to Kandinsky, Magritte to Hughie Lee-Smith, Diego Rivera to Ansel Adams – then explore and write about the El Paso Museum of History’s exhibition, Healing Hands & Healing Ways: Traditional Medicine in the Borderland. Discover what inspires artists to create and how artistic movements evolved over time. Then exercise your own creative process by putting your thoughts on paper and sharing them with the other writers. If you’re uncertain about your writing skills or shy about reading aloud, this is the perfect place to relax, practice and get useful, confidence-building feedback and tips on both writing and presentation skills. What Do YOU Think It Means? is designed to make you more aware of the images around you – on computer and TV screens, on billboards and in magazines, and on museum and gallery walls – and connect those images to your own experiences through writing.
Mónica Gómez is an award-winning writer, teaching artist, and on-air talent, known for her entertaining workshops filled with quick wit and insight. “A good workshop should turn us inside-out just enough to see how we’re all so different, yet so alike.”
This program is open and free to all and is made possible with the support of the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
Space is limited so please call early to reserve your seat for this awesome workshop.
