Writing Culture: Exploring the Intersection Between Text and Image
Date: 9:00am PDT October 25 Location: Lewis & Clark College, exact location TBD
Lewis & Clark College, exact location TBD
What is created at the intersection of text and image? In this Northwest Writing Institute course, we’ll examine public art, graffiti, flyers on telephone poles, black Sharpie on bathroom walls, poetry, graphic novels, ‘zines, and manifestos. We’ll look at artists who blend commentary into their visual work, and writers whose prose strays into other art forms.
By observing, scribbling, and experimenting with visual language ourselves, we’ll study how words and imagery work together to document what one form alone could not.
Designed for teachers, counselors, and citizens who would like to deepen their writing practice and enhance their skills of observation.
Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
A 3 hour sampler workshop called Exploring the Intersection of Text and Image will be offered on October 9 and will provide an introduction to the material covered in this course.
