RAFFMA, the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art at Cal State San Bernardino, will host a writing workshop for high school students.
The workshop, which will meet every Thursday for six weeks beginning Jan. 30, will use visual arts, featuring artwork on display at the museum and digital images of artworks, to practice and strengthen critical thinking and improve writing skills.
The writing exercises and assignments will be taught by Jerry Tivey and will take place in and out of the classroom with instructor and peer critiques in class.
The workshop will take place on Thursday evenings, Jan. 30-March 6, from 5:30-6:30 p.m., at RAFFMA. Workshop cost is $25 and space is limited. Registration forms will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and can be downloaded from the museum website or picked up at the museum front desk. Students under 18 must have written consent from their parent or legal guardian.
