ART 506 Writing for Artists

Prerequisite: Enrollment in the graduate program in Ceramic Arts (Second semester/3 credits) 

This course trains students to write about art critically and in a variety of modes. The course will focus on several types of art writing, from analytical reading and writing projects common to graduate courses in Art and Archaeology to artist statements and manifestos, as well as museum catalog entries and exhibition labels. The course involves weekly writing projects designed to expand students’ abilities to observe, describe, research, and analyze artworks, both their own and those produced by others, through writing.
