Sonnet ShakeUP

Grades 4-12

Extending the reach of HASF throughout the year and the community is the Poster and Sonnet Contest that accepts submissions from elementary, middle and high school students of original sonnets and graphic interpretations inspired by
Shakespearean text. This workshop will help prepare students to enter the contest. Winners will receive prizes and display opportunities!

 Teaching artists will present a brief history of Shakespeare's life and his Sonnets. The elements of how to write a sonnet will then be presented. Teachers will receive all of the preparation materials needed to enter their students in our sonnet competition.
