The art of writing


Wander through a local museum or art gallery and choose the painting, sculpture or exhibit that most inspires you. Write a description of the art piece and use its subject and emotion as a platform for a poem or a scene.

Can’t make it to a museum? View international art from the comfort of your computer chair:

The Louvre, Paris
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
Tate Britain, London
