Workshop Description 

When a writer touches the mind’s eye, images form, glorious and uncontained by any true physicality, open and fluid. But when does an artist get to put these images down on paper and to make physical the dialog going on in her mind? Writing in response to visual art is known as ekphrasis. In this class we will turn the tables and make art that responds directly to the written word. Make drawings and mono-prints using woodblocks as well as linoleum for relief printing, responding to words as the inspiration for images. Through an open ended exploration of imagery students will work quickly to generate images to create visual poems. We will collaborate with the poetry workshop Ekphrasis, Broadsides, and Collaboration, sharing our images to inspire their words, and using their words to inspire us in making our images. No prior printmaking experience necessary.
