Portland Parks & Recreation Family Classes Family classes are designed for parents, guardians and children to interact and participate together. Our philosophy is to honor the child’s creative impulses—focusing on process, rather than product. Visual art classes provide instruction in the use of art materials and techniques, encouraging each child’s individual style of visual expression. We recommend both adult and child wear grubbies as these classes can be messy. All materials are included. Clean-up is part of all MAC Youth Art classes.

Portland Parks & Recreation Literary Arts Classes for Adults & Teens

“Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.”
 —Jane Yolen

See Details & Find Out How to Get on Stage on Page 21

Storytelling Ages 18 & Up Love to write but don’t feel so sure about talking in person? Love telling stories but not sure what to do with a blank page? You can do both. Whether you want to write memoir, do a great interview, pitch your book project, create a play, or simply give your grandchildren (or parents!) the stories they should know, this is the class for you. Mix techniques from the literary and storytelling traditions to find a true story, share it with others in person, and get it down on paper. 1007361 Tu. 12:30 - 2:30 pm Jul. 1 – 22 $68 [4 classes] Aaron Raz Link Writing the Ten-Minute Play Ages 18 & Up Discover the art of playwriting and create a ten-minute play from scratch.

Explore topics such as characterization, plot, dialogue, and more, through in-class exercises. Come out of the course with confidence and a finished script. 1007362 Th. 10 am - 12 pm Jun. 26 - Jul. 24 $85 [5 classes] Michael Cooper Writing for Transformation & Healing Ages 16 & Up Writing can be a remarkable tool for restoration and healing. In times of personal upheaval, grief, stress or transition, writing can be a vehicle for change while it also becomes art, something separate from us, touching and assisting others in the process. Whether you have written all your life or never written before, you can transform difficult life struggles into wonderful stories, poems, creative vignettes or memoir. 1007363 Tu. 7 - 8:30 pm Jun. 24 – Jul. 15 $54 [4 classes] Donna Prinzmetal Creating Velocity Ages 18 & Up Imagine sitting at the airport on the hood of your car, watching a plane take off and feeling the fast and faster moving air against your cheek, hair, and eyes. That’s velocity, and fine pieces of prose and poetry can create this same effect. Read others’ work, write your own, and get swept up in the energy of fine writing while observing the physics of it as well. All genres. Some experience recommended. 1007478 Th. 7 - 9 pm Jul. 24 – Aug 14 $68 [4 classes] Judith Pulman Recast & Revision Ages 18 & Up A single detail, use of tense, description, or approach can entirely change the feel of a piece of writing. Experiment with others’ completed pieces by casting each piece with a particular difference. Watch how one strong choice can strengthen the overall piece of writing, and bring this back to your own work. All genres. 1007480 Sat. 10 am - 3 pm Aug. 16 $70 [1 class] Kate Carroll de Gutes & Judith Pulman

“We see achievement as purposeful and monolithic, like the sculpting of a massive tree trunk that has first to be brought from the forest and then shaped by long labor to assert the artist’s vision, rather than something crafted from odds and ends, like a patchwork quilt, and lovingly used to warm different nights and bodies.” —Mary Catherine Bateson

Inclusion Services for People with Special Needs Within the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, Portland Parks & Recreation (PP & R) provides accommodations to individuals with disabilities/special needs, so that they may receive an equal opportunity to participate in programs offered citywide. How it Works 1. Choose the activity you would like to participate in, and then the PP&R site where the activity is being offered. 2. Register for the activity. You can do this in person at a PP&R site, or online at www.PortlandParks.org. When registering, let the person know that you will need accommodations in order to participate in the activity (online, check the box.) 3.
