Writing Students Visit Art Spiegelman Exibit at Jewish Museum

Last week, Junior and Senior students from the Yeshivah of Flatbush Expository Writing,  Journalism, and College Level Writing classes had the opportunity to travel to the Jewish Museum in Manhattan to see an exhibit on Art Spiegelman, the renowned cartoonist and the son of Holocaust survivors. We saw many examples of his work and how the difference in styles was meant to connote different moods. For instance, the comics often became progressively more colorful over the course of the story, signifying a change in mood. Although this is an artistic technique, it taught us about the subtleties that we as writers can use to convey different emotions. ~Melissa Duchan
