How can looking at the ways artists draw, from Rembrandt to Roz Chast, from portraits to cartoons, influence our poems?
Drawings can’t exist without lines—thick, thin, dark or evanescent. How can we achieve such textures within a poem—both in terms of our visual images and our written lines? Even our hand-written lines?
This studio seminar is devoted to that constantly shifting relationship between drawing and poetry. It includes a visit to the Morgan Library to view drawings and handwriting that may help us explore our balancing.
All students at all levels are welcome, including poets and visual artists.
Class meets Sundays: Mar 8, 15, 22 and 29.
