Text and the Visual Imagination|
In this course, we will explore, deconstruct, and reinvent text by utilizing tools from design and visual arts. Through practical assignments, we will train our visual imagination, as well as develop an aesthetic literacy and knowledge of different performance elements. This class focuses on the creative process, as well as provides new tools that will enable students to realize their own creative projects.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Interpretation
Students will develop their own text into a creative and practical assignment. Students will learn to interpret, conceptualize and develop text into visual work.
