The Magpie by Claude Monet, 1869 (detail)

Please Note: This program has a rescheduled date (originally December 13, 2022).

Discover the power of reflective writing guided by the founding instructor of the National Gallery of Art’s popular Writing Salon, Mary Hall Surface. Inspired by Claude Monet’s The Magpie and two winter poems by Mary Oliver, you’ll explore the lessons that the season offers us when we slow down, look closely, and reflect.

Designed for writers of all levels and for the curious, the workshop invites you to look outwardly at art and poetry and to look inwardly through writing. These reflections can become creative fertile ground for memoir, poetry, and more.

Surface is a teaching artist, playwright, and theatre director and producer. She presents workshops nationwide in creative writing and drama as a Kennedy Center teaching artist and was a faculty member at Harvard’s Project Zero Classroom.

The workshop has a limited enrollment to maximize interaction among the instructor and students.
