On Saturday, April 6 at 2:00 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library is happy to present a workshop on the synergy of poetry and painting. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.

Westfield resident and artist and poet Joy Ann Cabanos will present an afternoon of experiencing color and expression through poetry and watercolor painting. Participants are encouraged to bring a favorite poem whose imagery they would enjoy sharing with the group. Participants will create a watercolor painting inspired by poetry.
