Participants will choose ONE of the following options. 

ART 305 / ENG 225 Experiencing London by Design (3 credits)


ART 305 looks at the history of graphic design through key British design figures, both native and immigrant, from the past as well as the work of contemporary artists in the strong landscape tradition within the context of industrialization, the arts and crafts movement, pop art of the 1960s and beyond. Through the collections encountered at the Victoria & Albert museum, the Design Museum, the printmaking and published works at the St. Brides Library, to meeting working professional designers -- we discuss the degree to which art and design represents the history, struggles and aspirations of a nation. We consider how the work and time period could be understood in relation to specific social and historical contingencies and engage in discourses that have shaped more recent art and design practices as we consider the nature of the historic collections and art and design spaces in the city.

ENG 225 is about writing through exceptional, personal experience. Travel writing is a centuries old tradition that has taken on new and invigorating forms in the modern world. This course will teach students the art of bringing real life to the page, capturing the intensity of setting, and invigorating reader's senses, satisfying their desire for adventure and knowledge, through words. Students will hone their investigative writing skills through research and local practice, then spend Spring Break in London, England where they will receive additional writing instruction from Masters at the British Library, then collect hands on research along the Thames, meet the exotic animals of the London Wetland Centre, and get lost in the historical atmosphere of the London Tower. They will keep daily, live travel blogs, and after the travel, students will use all they have experienced and learned to collaborate with ART 305 students in designing creative, educational websites for novice travelers.
