Program Description

Event Description

April is National Poetry Month. To celebrate, we'll be creating our own blackout poetry. Blackout or erasure poetry is created by taking any form of printed text and blacking out the unwanted words to create a poem or statement. Standard techniques usually involve a black sharpie marker, but other art mediums may be used.
To create your own poem, use a black sharpie, markers, colored pencils, etc. The kits will include a selection of book pages and a black marker. Use these or anything else you have to make your own creation.
