Each class focuses on an artist from modern-contemporary art history, teaching their styles and creative intentions behind their work. The content will be taught through lectures focusing on artists’ historical background, movement, and actual practice – approximately 20 and 40-55 mins respectively. Art supplies needed for this class: paper, tubed watercolors, red pencil and black permanent marker. This term will feature Pablo Picasso, Gustav Klimt and Keith Haring.
The main purpose of this class is to gain more in-depth understanding of their artistic intentions by creating your own artwork in their styles, but it will also provide you with therapeutic effects by using your hands in a relaxed, artistic atmosphere during this difficult time.
