Taking English classes helped me better define my art practice because I fell in love with so many of the rich characters and themes that I studied. If an instructor is open to it, I think the sky is the limit with how creatively you can interpret an assignment — in the past I’ve used textile arts, stop motion, filmmaking, bookmaking and painting in a variety of ways.
