Photos and Story by

The Rock Creek Campus is hosting free improvisational workshops for the comedy impaired and tragically hip. The workshop will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Oct. 10 and 24; Nov. 7 and 28, and Dec. 5 in the Forum (Room 114 of Building 3). These workshops are open to students, faculty and staff. Attendees are welcome to come for all or part of the workshop.

Artist panel to talk about the creative process

The Rock Creek Campus also will host an artists workshop, “Creative Process” In the Beginning,” on Tuesday Oct. 16, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in The Forum of Building 3. This is the first of a three-part series of discussions with working artists on the nature of the creative process: how works of art begin, developed and how problems get resolved.

The first panel includes poet Matt Yurdana, author of, “Public Gestures,” and winner of a 2006 Oregon Book Award; playwright Gretchen Icenogle, winner of a 2006 Drammy Award for her script, “The Mark,”; and painter Una Kim. Each will discuss a specific work and how it came into being. This event is free and open to the public.

For more information, call (503) 614-7522.
