There have been many ways in which writing and art have come together.
As a grad student at ECU I worked with other TAs in figuring out how to
entice students into verbalizing their art criticism. One way was
through the sketchbook/journal. I have several teacher friends who use
this requirement in teaching college art classes. We also prepared
worksheets for gallery and museum visits which required writing.
One of my favorite lesson plans, developed from Learning to Read from
the Arts, is called reading, writing and art. It involves reading
poetry, writing poetry and art activities based on those poems. If you
are interested I can give you more specifics. It has been highly
sucessful with ages 5-12.
Actually, I can think of dozens of opportunities for art students to
write, and read, including researching art and artist on the world wide
web. Anything I can do. Email jjones
