The Pen and the Knife: Writing and Printmaking

If you want to make original art, this course is for you. You’ll be learning how to make woodblock prints—which you’ll carve and critique—and about creative writing—which you’ll revise and workshop. You’ll keep a sketchbook for daily practice at the serious play that goes into making art. You’ll spend time at the Brush Gallery and the library’s Special Collections learning to analyze and write about images and the written word. At the end of the semester, you’ll formally present your own work in public. This course fulfills the FYP general education requirement.
