Students will study examples of celebrated poems that respond to or were inspired by art. Then students will be led through a variety of writing activities inspired by the unique weavings of D.Y. Begay, ultimately leading to a draft of an original poem. Students will discuss poetic techniques such as the use of vivid imagery, the importance of sonics, how to shape a poetic line as well as techniques for drafting and revision
