WLLO hosts a running series of Monday Ted Talks via Zoom, open to all villagers.

On February 22, Paulann Peterson, Oregon‘s 6th Poet Laureate, presented her writing--poetry, prose--some "creatures of memory," and talked about her writing process using "springboards" and imagery, answer questions, respond to comments, etc.

On March 1st you are invited to bring pens and paper and with Paulann‘s guidance begin generating material and writing. You do not need to have attended on Feb 22nd to gain from this session, but your experience will be richer if you choose to do both.

Every Monday at 1 pm they watch online a pre-selected Ted Talk, followed by a discussion and ideas for next week. They often enjoy lunch while meeting.

Please remember to mute yourself!

To RSVP and Register, please contact info@wllovillage.org or at (503) 308-8223 to receive the meeting link.

RWV Art Club - via GoToMeeting

River West artists: missing your art groups? Our Art Club, led by Shelley Radovich, has gone virtual. Get together online with fellow artists to show and tell what you’ve been working on while staying safer at home. Our Virtual Art Club has a few happy artists that have been graciously sharing their work with us. At the moment they are developing new work and projects. So, we invite any other artists in River West Village to send us photos of past and present projects. Are you a quilter, photographer, yard art compiler, wood worker, garden developer, sewer, knitter or some other creative? Please send photos with a short explanation of your delight in your project.
