An artist adds substance and depth to a painting by adding layers of paint to the canvas. We see the art from different angles with each pass of the brush; the interpretation of the piece expands. The same can be done in writing memoir. In this class, we’ll deconstruct layers in a portion of a short story written by Mavis Gallant and then reverse the process and build our own scenes, layer by layer. We will take a short break for lunch; bring a brown bag if you’d like. [ALL LEVELS]
