Learn to tell stories by combining different languages, such as words, video, and photography to express your emotions in an original way.

A course by Lina Botero

When we read poetry, an infinity of images are associated with the verses. And each person will create a totally different album for the same poem. Lina Botero knows how to handle languages that feed each other when they get together and we make them talk.

In this online course, you will learn that a picture is not necessarily worth a thousand words. If not, it is potentiated when the words go beyond the visual description.
