Drawing Words: Experiencing Art Through Writing Poetry

Instructor(s): Kitty Jospé
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.
Beginner Beginner Beginner

In this course, you will look at works of art and the inspiration behind them to draw out meaningful words. Using visual clues to craft contours of sound that point to sense, we will experiment with vowel as color, consonant as paintbrush; examine line and form to achieve the poetic practice of “showing without telling.” We will explore the multiple ways in which the imagination paints feelings, to give both writer and reader a sense of delight as multiple layers and understandings unfold.
