Workshop:Mar Vista: Nature in the City: A Poetry Workshop
Date:Sep 28, 1–3 PM
Age Range:10-18
Description:Nature is everywhere in Los Angeles, but sometimes it takes the patience of a poet to notice it. Take a deep breath as we walk through the neighborhood and use our senses to explore nature in the city. We’ll be collecting sights, sounds, and smells on our walk to turn into poems. Then, we’ll record our poems so they can be featured in the Poem-Booth at the Time Travel Mart in Mar Vista.

Naturaleza en la ciudad: un taller de poesía

La naturaleza está en todas partes en Los Ángeles, pero a veces se necesita la paciencia de un poeta para darse cuenta. Respira profundamente mientras caminamos por el vecindario y usamos nuestros sentidos para explorar la naturaleza en la ciudad. Estaremos recolectando imágenes, sonidos y olores en nuestra caminata para convertirnos en poemas. Luego, grabaremos nuestros poemas para que puedan aparecer en el Poem-Booth en el Time Travel Mart en Mar Vista.
