How do words and images work together?

Words + images. Words are images… Introduction classes include time constrained workshops that result in a show at the end of the 2 hour class.

First up, we brainstorm. Then pitch ideas. Then Make. And finally install.





One exercise includes thinking of words that have words nested inside. As a group we look for interest as some smaller words are more interesting in relationship to the larger word…




Another exercise involves combining two things (one image and one word) to make a third thing… here we get basic practice in making meaning… understanding what is read first then second… we introduce the idea of working within constraints, with a limited color palette, how to build relationships between design elements, how to activate the space… and more. All in preparation for more complex assignments…
