The art of the Impressionists can be found in museums throughout the world. This class is not on the history of the Impressionist artists or their art as much as it is about how to access their art online in the time of limited museum viewing. Join us for a virtual museum visit of some of the most beloved art in the world. (Term 1 Class)
Proper Woman’s Work - The women behind the artists
Is there such thing as the lone genius, the man who does it all and is justifiably famous for his efforts? No.
Join me for an in-depth look at the women who did more than just type their husband’s manuscript ( #thanksfortyping), but nurtured, nursed, and promoted some of the most famous artists of our time. We will look behind the curtain at who is really responsible for the fame and influence of artists like Kerouac, Yeats, Balanchine, Joyce and Dickinson and discover the mechanics, the leverage, and the shear work of keeping their legend alive. This is a celebration of the women who labor behind the scenes and without whom much of our art and literature would not have entered the cannon. (Term 1 Class)
In this class we will explore and understand an art form that uses the jumble of our outer world, those fragments, ads, and volume of information that is our modern “normal” to create create new statements, alternative narratives and of course, a way to express the inexpressible. We will take a new look at the Surrealists, creative Victorian ladies, poets and Monty Python. You will recognize it as collage. "Prior to 1914, collage was a novelty; by 1918, it was a necessity," Billy Renkl - collage artist (Term 1 Class)
