Cullman Center Institute for Teachers: Text and Image Workshop (spring break)


BEN KATCHOR, Instructor

Through a series of writing and drawing exercises, we will explore the possibilities of expression that arise when text and image are combined on the page. Participants will discover and amplify, through their writing, the stories suggested by their drawings, and analyze, through their drawing, the descriptive passages in their written texts. No previous drawing experience is necessary, but everyone will be asked to make the attempt.

Ben Katchor’s latest graphic novel is The Cardboard Valise. The recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “genius” Fellowship, Katchor has drawn and written several books, including Julius Knipl: Real Estate Photographer and The Jew of New York. He teaches at Parsons School of Design.

This seminar is by application only and the deadline to apply has passed.
