“Do you want to create in words and images? This class will help you develop your ideas by guiding you from planning to project completion. We will consider the work of contemporary word and image artists using a range of media, including painting, photo-based art, sculpture, and electronic, as well as a range of platforms including exhibition, the web/multi-media, books and assemblages. In-class exercises and weekly assignments will help you develop your own word and image associations, while broadening your experience with a variety of artistic approaches. The class will culminate in a presentation of projects.”

This unique series, sponsored by the Center for Photographic Exhibitions, New England School of Photography, and the Lesley Seminars, pairs outstanding visual artists and writers in a format that deepens our understanding of each artist's work, and creates an interplay between the artists themselves – their images and their words.”
