Teachers and students of Creative Writing are familiar with the various ways the discipline engages with visual art, from the venerable tradition of ekphrasis to the use of images as a ‘prompt’ for classroom writing activities. This article presents the findings of a recent Open University Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project, funded by FASSTEST, which set out to investigate the ways that the teaching approaches of Creative Writing and Art History can be used to enrich the student experience and enhance learners’ understanding both of their own and another discipline.
