VOICE + VISION
12 Sessions >> Wednesdays, September 14–December 7
(no session September 21)
7:30–10:30pm, Studio 13, $530
Explore the relationship of the word to visual art, learn to incorporate text into your work, and discover the importance of visual poetics in the creative process. You will experiment with letting words “conjure up” images and allowing images to invite verbal elaboration. Beginners can work with simple drawing or collage techniques; more advanced students can work in any media (excluding oil paints or other fumy substances). You will explore text as image, pattern, background, communicator, and visual element; utilize found text and “automatic” writing and drawing; and discover how random pairings of word and image can open up whole new avenues of ideas for future work. No prerequisite.

PLEASE NOTE: Public Education courses are held contingent on a minimum enrollment, which is determined two business days prior to a class start date. Public Education Staff will contact you ONLY if there is a course cancellation or change.
What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.
What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.
SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
