Let’s investigate great works of art and draw our creative inspiration from them. We’ll begin each class by looking at amazing art as a window into the histories, cultures, and artistic choices evidenced in each masterpiece. Our observations and insights will serve as springboards for then creating our own works in drawing, painting, printing, clay, sculpture, and more. Projects and themes in this studio art class will vary across sessions to keep students engaged and excited.
