826LA@Hammer: K-Pop and Beyond

  • This is a past program

Recommended for ages 9+

This multi-modal focused workshop asks young writers to explore the varied emotions and writing styles of K-pop artists. Writers will develop the tools necessary to compose their own written and visual expressions.

Participants discuss and look at various K-pop artists, both popular and underground, and note the change in both writing styles and emotional expressions within songs. Writers will have the opportunity to create a visual representation of their connection to their chosen artist and song.

Workshop leader Cristina Medina is a committed educator who teaches K-12 and university English courses across California. Medina enjoys developing interactive workshops for all ages and using different media types to publish unique writing pieces.
