Writing an Art-Inspired Water Scene Poem

Online Class with JC Wayne

Wednesday, August 11, 5:00-7:00pm US Eastern via Zoom

Inspired by the Art of Sarah Yeoman

Why has water scenery served as muse to artists and poets down through the ages? Join poet, JC Wayne, to discover the unique allure of water in creative artistic and poetry expression through exploring writing a water scenery poem inspired by Gallery 46 artist Sarah Yeoman's watercolor painting, "Upon Reflection." To support our writing, we'll explore examples of water scenery poems, practice warm-up writing prompts, connect with quick ways to dial up our natural ability to create and observe, and enjoy the opportunity to share our work with each other.

A special bonus: Sarah will be at the workshop to share her inspiration and process in creating her painting and to answer your questions.


  • Something to write on
  • Something to write with
