"Basically, an ekphrasis is a literary description of art. Like other kinds of imagery, ekphrasis paints a picture with words. What makes it different from something like pictorialism is that the picture it paints is itself a picture: ekphrasis stages an encounter between representations in two mediums, one visual and one verbal." That's the definition from Rebecca Olson of Oregon State University. (Read the full definition here.)

What we'll do? With paintings and photos, we'll challenge our words to interprete what we see. We'll read what we write aloud and offer feedback.
