Saturday Art Class, Spoken Word Workshop Series with Tanya Neumeyer

Due to the spread of COVID 19 and our responsibility to our patrons and artists, we have decided to move this event to an online forum. You can check back to this event page on the day of the event and streaming instructions will be posted. Thank you for continuing to engage with Arts Etobicoke during these uncertain times and for meeting these challenges as opportunities to engage with the arts in a new and exciting way.

Arts Etobicoke is offering a FREE online spoken word workshop series with Toronto poet Tanya Neumeyer. Join Tanya for an online and interactive poetry workshop on Saturday, April 11, at 11:00 am until noon. You will be guided through several writing exercises that will get your creativity muscle working. The workshop will take place via Zoom and registrants will be emailed with instructions on how to sign in. This platform allows us to share our work and collaborate creatively as we are online together. This class is open to all ages. Parents may assist younger children.

Registrations for this workshop are now closed
