A12 The Art of Haiku

Haiku originated in the 1600s in Japan but remains widely read today. In fact, its concision and brevity lend itself to today’s life. In this class we will learn the history and various forms of haiku. We will read traditional haiku and examples from today, including the contemporary journal Modern Haiku. You will come away with a better understanding and appreciation of haiku, as well as a batch of your own finely tuned haiku.

Level I – This class is for those with some familiarity with the medium. This could include informal use of the medium outside of the classroom.
