ALL ABOUT ART
CREATINGART FROM POETRY
Our Joy Inside presenter, Rosie suggested thisgreat act ivity in our most recent All About Art session. Poems can create beaut iful images in our minds. Wouldn?t you like to put those imagesonto paper?A great way to really enjoy poet ry is to create a visual representat ion of a poem by making a paint ing or picture that captureshow it makes you feel.We've included a poem in the act ivity pack but you can use whatever poem takesyour fancy. To get started you need to know three thingsabout your poem: 1.What is your poem about ?Does it t ell a st ory?Or does it descr ibe somet hing like a landscape, an object or a feeling? 2. How does t hat poemmake you feel?
All About Art isone of our themed Joy Inside sessions. The session is60 minutes long and is specifically for
carersand people livingwith dement ia to come and t ry new thingsand meet new people.
Then there'snothing else to do except get going on creat ing your masterpiece! 3.What pict ures do you have in your head when you read t he poem?
