Introduction to Visual Literacy

Jedidiah Morfit, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Art (Sculpture)

February, 3, 10, 17 & 24, Wednesdays 2 - 3 p.m.

Never before in human history has communication been so inextricably linked with visual images. Every photograph that accompanies every article in every newspaper or magazine, every ad on TV or the internet, every package of every product in the grocery story, every photo on Instagram, every scene in every movie - they all have a job to do. They are all intended to tell a story, generate a response, or make an argument. This class will provide a very broad overview to how images do their work, and how we can be smarter and savvier consumer of the visual culture that surrounds us.
