Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Artist as Reader is basically what qualifies as the Art Academy of Cincinnati's English course. During this course, you explore different types of writing, including poetry, experimental fiction, micro epics, and more. You are expected to read what material is provided to you, but you occasionally may be asked to choose readings for the course. You must keep a sketchbook for both written and visual responses to readings. You frequently are asked to write your own short stories in the style of writing you are studying and read it to the class. Your piece is then discussed among you and your classmates.
I learned a lot about different types of writing that I didn't know existed. I have new experience with writing in non-conventional ways and exploring creative writing. I also connect my writing to my artwork more than I ever did before. The class discussions are what has benefited me above all else; I've gained both positive and constructive feedback about my writing and it has helped me to grow as both a writer and an artist.

Advice for students:
The best advice that I could give to anyone taking this course is to not be afraid to write in unfamiliar ways. Explore new ideas and concepts, and test their potential. You'll be surprised at what you can do.
