CNY Arts Center offers writing classes

The CNY Arts Center of Fulton has announced its latest writing classes.

“Journal Entries – On a Personal Note” will be offered Monday, July 22, from 4 to 8 p.m. Instructor Brittney Jerred will introduce writers to the concepts of voice, colorful writing, and showing, not telling.

All will complete a writing project in class — either by hand or by word processing — that will be published on the internet for participants to share with friends and the public.

A link will be provided at class.

“I look forward to meeting our local talented writers at this workshop and reading their submissions,” said Jerred. “We will have a finished product to share at the end.”

Those who prefer to write on a laptop computer may do so, but traditional pen-and-paper writing is also welcome.

The class will be held at the CNY Arts Center, located at 357 State Street in Fulton

Participants should bring a bagged lunch.

“Writers On The Road” is a class that will take place at the Arts Center’s “Arts in the Heart” Gallery, located at 47 S. First St. in downtown Fulton.

The program will take place July 20 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Instructor Jim Farfaglia will explore how artwork can inspire and prompt work. Instruction will be provided to guide participants as they write short pieces inspired by the artwork on display at the Gallery.

“Writing and creating studio art are related at a basic level,” said Farfaglia. “They are different ways to express ourselves, but when experienced together, they can further inspire us. Not only is this class a great way to see the exciting artwork being created by local artists, but to look deeper into what the artists are expressing through our writing.”

Both classes are open to writers of all levels of experiences. There is a fee for the classes.

Those seeking more information about the fees and other class details, or to register, may call the CNY offices at 592-3373.
