Teachers, please join the National Portrait Gallery and DC-based writer Willona Sloan to learn how to use portraiture to inspire your students’ creative writing and improve their writing skills. Inspired by our popular writing workshop series, Strike a Prose, we'd like to invite teachers to participate in a two-part professional development workshop dedicated to using portraiture as inspiration for writing.

Session II - Creating Writing Prompts Inspired by Portraiture
In this workshop, we will share lesson planning ideas, activities, and strategies for teaching students to focus on details, create characters, and explore their personal experiences in connection to works of art through creative writing. We will also practice developing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry writing prompts. The workshop will highlight the Portrait Gallery’s special exhibition, The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today.

The first workshop in this series will take place on May 20th from 3:30- 5pm.
