Do you like to be creative, find new ways to express yourself and relieve stress? Join us for a workshop reading ancient myths, discussing the works of art and literature that they have inspired, and making our own myth-inspired stories, poems, and songs!

In this six-week workshop, we take a playful approach to the stories of ancient Greece, and the creatively powerful images within them. In each unit, we will read a famous myth, explore interpretations by creators from different times, learn techniques for getting started in a new creative genre, and share what we create!

Geared towards adults, but interested younger participants are welcome! All levels of ability and experience are welcome!
