Community Education Upcoming Events:
Memoir & Documentation
In collaboration with The Porch Writer’s Collective
Friday, January 29, 9:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Free, breakfast and lunch included
Watkins Community Education, in partnership with the Porch Writer’s Collective, is excited to present this multi-media workshop that will give educators a chance to learn creative writing and filming techniques for documenting short memoirs. Educators will learn the basic skills and concepts of turning memory into memoir and will then learn how to set up an interesting shot to film their fellow educators as they share their personal narratives. Film concepts including composition, lighting, and camera techniques will be covered as well as how to use easily accessible technology such as smart phones to take this project back into the classroom. Space is limited. Register now!
Watkins Teacher Programs are funded in part by the Memorial Foundation and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
