Dr. Janet Hoult, Culver City’s Honorary Artist Laureate for Poetry, taught a “Word Painting” poetry class at the Culver City Senior Center on Wednesday afternoons. During the one hour sessions she covered many poetic literary devices such as alliteration, metaphors and similes, as well as how to compose haiku, sonnets and free verse. Class poets shared poems they wrote based upon what they learned. Janet conducted a poetry contest based on Culver City and the city's historical sites as part of the Culver City Centennial Celebration in 2017.
The Word With Painting Poetry class is now being conducted via Zoom by Ron Cohen. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
