Join this 45-minute weekly virtual session where you will look at and write about a work of art from the McMaster Museum of Art collection.
This 12-week program gives participants an opportunity
to learn more about visual literacy
discuss formal design elements
appreciate visual art with Museum of Art education staff
connect with fellow grad students and have some fun!
You will receive a writing prompt to help you practice creative writing inspired by each work of art.
You can attend as many sessions as you want – this is not a cumulative learning program and there is no homework. Looking at the art and writing is done during the class!
DC12 is an opportunity for graduate students to build skills in observation, description, and critical writing through examinations of visual art and writing exercises.
Why take this course?
With visual art, there is no wrong answer. Relieve some of the pressure of graduate school by connecting with other grad students, reducing isolation and building confidence while learning novel ways to see, judge, and reflect.
