"Try to be one on whom nothing is lost."
- Henry James
During this session students will explore the "art" of observation. Exercises will begin in the building as students eavesdrop on other intersessions and report back with a brief writing sample inspired by overheard conversations.
We will discuss Richard Hugo's "Triggering Town" beforew we take the bus to a public area in Aurora and begin observation again. This should "refresh" students a bit at a critical point in the week as well as give them an opportunity to explore "the real world" off of campus, which for IMSA students can sometimes be elusive.
