Course Catalog

Literature of the Sciences

All Levels | This reading course explores the intersection of art and science. Discussion will include: the psychological basis for art; the concept of art-for-art’s sake; how improvisation can lead to insight and alchemy; the rejection of “inspiration”; and the theory that art first and foremost must inform its maker. We’ll read and discuss excerpts of poetry and prose from writers who use the sciences as fodder, and we’ll try one or two in-class writing exercises geared toward writing-through-discovery.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
