Poetry and the Visual Art Journal Winter 2022

Class Details

Academic courses from all disciplines at Williams often require the use of a journal to help students focus on their work. This course will push that concept to its limit as we explore poems of all kinds and our visual responses to them. Our goal will be to find real and tangible ways that visual art journaling can enhance our learning and writing. Using collage, watercolor, ink and other mediums, we will create and record visual insights as we read, and we will explore how this practice can help us conceive what we are reading. We will include both our own poems as well as the work of other poets in our finished journals. There will also be readings from various authors and artists on the subject of journaling as a tool for learning.
