This course is a special opportunity to explore connections among the visual arts, writing, and literature. This challenging, thought-provoking experience for reflective practitioners is intended to expand definitions of literacy. Participants will discover the powerful synergy between word and image; use the visual arts to respond to reading of all kinds; experience art workshops in drawing, pastels, print making, and sculpture using found objects; and find inspiration for writing in these art forms. No previous experience or talent required, only a willingness to delve into new modes of written and artistic expression.
“This is a great chance to explore art, both appreciation and creation, while planning how to open students’ eyes to art all around them.”
$50 text/materials fee in addition to regular 3-credit tuition and fees.
