This Haiku class could help you find your inner Zen.

A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

In this class you will use exercises based on word play to unlock your hidden gems. Sparking your imagination as you explore the philosophy of haiku as it has been preserved: the focus on a brief moment in time; a use of provocative, colorful images; an ability to be read in one breath; and a sense of sudden enlightenment and illumination

When you have decided which is your favorite one ~ you will have an opportunity to transfer your Haiku on to a piece of high quality watercolor paper and add your own personal details to enhance your newly created art.
