My Idea Book

Instructor(s): Donna Marbach
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Code: JY17-M26
Artists carry sketchbooks to capture ideas with drawings. Writers carry journals to capture thoughts and experiences with words. In this class, we are going to gather both pictures and words in our own special “idea books” in order to explore ways in which art and words can work together. We will take walks and visit the Memorial Art Gallery to capture images in both sketches and words. We will experiment with both illustration and writing by trying different drawing and painting techniques, and with words by responding to prompts and exercise. We will explore some special projects (e.g. collage and concrete poetry) to find different ways we can use art and words in combinations to communicate our ideas or feelings.
