Speak, Memory is a synaesthetic writing workshop for kids ages 8-12. So far, I’ve taught at 826LA in Echo Park, CA and the Armand Hammer Museum in Westwood, CA. It’s a multisensory workshop that incorporates music, color, sensory deprivation and cookies.
What does a rhombus sound like? Can you smell a symphony? In this workshop, participants will learn about synaesthesia, otherwise known as the mixing of the senses, and explore their relationships to sight, touch, sound, and smell. Students will use their newly developed synaesthetic tool kit to write about their own memories and the sensory recollections that shape them. Ages 8–13.
