Poems, Prose, and Pictures – New!
Explore the relationship between words and pictures in a collaborative setting. We’ll use visual images (some found, some created by you) to prompt new creative writing. You’ll create an evolving, book-like object.
- Course readings and some basic materials will be provided. Students may wish to purchase additional materials and art supplies once the course is underway, which will be discussed when the class meets.
