Join local educator and artist Sean Felix to get an inside look at his process for transforming poetry into visual art. We will start by writing haiku poetry inspired by the National Gallery’s collection. These poems will then become the inspiration for a contemplative artwork called a haiga which aims to expand our thoughts and emotions in a re-expression of our poetry.
Sean Felix is a Washington D.C.-based educator, a poet, and an artist. He has been writing for 25 years, though his passion for words has existed his entire life. Sean became enamored with haiku and haiga three years ago and finds his daily haiku practice to be one of the most peaceful and enjoyable parts of his day. He hopes by sharing his practice with more people that they will find moments of calm and joy in their lives.
