Word Art & Art Words

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

Code: JY17-M36
Both artwork and literature tell stories, express feelings, and share dreams. Both are part of the world of books. In this class we will explore ways in which words and artwork can work together. We might illustrate a story or use pictures as prompts to help us write. We will design collages that combine words and art, use letters and words to make pictures, and try our hand at concrete poetry (poetry that makes a picture). If you like to doodle or draw and you like writing and playing with words, this is for you.
