Course Aims

Writers through the ages have used words to express and describe the world around them and their ideas, while artists have relied on visual elements to do so. This course aims to provide students with the convergence of Chinese literature and fine arts. It also aims to introduce students the intertextuality and regeneration between literary arts and fine arts as both of them are products of human spirit, representing in essence two sides of the same coin.
Upon completing the course, students will be able to discover the modes of expression of literary works and artworks, and analyze the features of their creative impulse from one mode to the other.
