Visual Poetry on GIMP
In celebration of National Poetry Month, participants are invited to join us on Discord as we learn to create visual poetry using GIMP, a free image manipulation program. Visual poetry is a combination of visual art (like paintings, photographs, and videos) and written art (poetry). During this program, participants will learn to use GIMP to create a piece of art and combine it with poetry. Participants will get the chance to create their own artwork and will receive a printed copy on canvas.
Participants should download GIMP prior to attending this program. Use this link to download GIMP: gimp.org/downloads/
