READING, WRITING, AND GENEALOGY Remember. Relive. Create.

REMEMBER. RELIVE. CREATE. Sarah Bobson

Sarah has been a writer for more than 40 years and a language arts teacher for 20 years. Sarah has an M.A. in Psycholinguistics from Teachers College, Columbia University and has written hundreds of published articles for newspapers and magazines. For the last seven years, she has been writing a column on the 60s for The Independent in Livermore, CA. She recently relocated to Portland and is teaching language arts workshops at Oregon Episcopal School. We’re exciting for Sarah to offer her workshop, The Memories Train, through Senior Recreation. Welcome Sarah! 6

If you enjoy working with crafts, writing poems, short stories, novels or your memoirs, oral storytelling, singing or playing an instrument, or engaging in another creative medium such as photography, painting, clay, drawing, creative stitchery, scrapbooking, etc., this interactive workshop will provide many ideas for future projects. We will look at pictures, listen to music, see clips of films, TV shows and commercials of the decade, and much more, to get the creative juices flowing. In the process, you will not only journey back through your own life, but you will hear the memories and experiences of others. You will then express your own memories and experiences in the medium of your choice and share it with the class. In addition to having fun reminiscing and sharing in a sense of community, hearing others’ experiences could enhance your own projects and take them to a whole new level of self-expression. The first workshop will focus on the 60's and will end with a decade-themed party!
