Photography Art830, Art is Fiction

Words make images, and images excite words. In this writing workshop/seminar, artists will think about the craft of writing, the choices a writer must make and how a writer makes decisions. How do these decisions help a visual artist approach the making of art? Those decisions sometimes align with those a visual artist faces, but differently. The space on a page, how does a paragraph work; the length of a sentence (or line). The placement of one thing next to another, and how meaning is constructed through those abutments. In writing it is only words, but again words make images. In this course, we will discuss narrative, and various approaches to it. We will read published stories, and discuss how they are made. We will also write our own. This will be a doing and thinking and analyzing course.
