“The finest art should be accessible to everyone, but often we must grant that access to ourselves. It’s rewarding to witness my students’ visual and verbal vocabulary expand with each assignment. Translating what we see in visual culture through formal analysis, whether written or spoken, is a key method of gaining mastery and insight.”
