Through a series of exercises based upon historical print and performance techniques -- picture-recitation, toy theater, broadsides and illustrated pamphlets -- students will explore the expressive possibilities of combining text and image in original handmade works. Creative writing and journalism students will analyze, through drawing, descriptive passages in their own written texts. Art students will discover and amplify, through text, the stories suggested by their drawings. Students will be encouraged to develop new uses and functions for picture-storytelling that go beyond the current models of publishing. The course emphasizes handmade drawing and the cultivation of an “autographic voice.” All students, regardless of experience, will be expected to write and draw.
Open to: All School of Art, Media & Technology upper-level undergraduate degree students.
