Painting from the Modern Masters-register through PAFA
Fri for 8 weeks from 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Be inspired to experiment with the ideas and techniques of the Modern Masters in this art appreciation/hands-on studio course. Zoom lectures and discussions will examine the historical context, techniques, aesthetics, and emotional content of several art movements in Europe and America from the 1880s to the 1950s, including Impressionism, Cubism, Dada and Surrealism, the Ballet Russe, art of the Harlem Renaissance and the WPA, and Modernism. Out-of-class assignments will build off the lectures, allowing students to experiment in the style of the movements in the drawing, painting, or collage media of their choice.
Zoom meetings will focus on art historical discussion and critiques of students’ assignments, but will not offer how-to drawing/painting instruction. Prior drawing/painting experience is recommended, but experimentation is welcome.
