What is art? Why is it important? These are questions that have been asked for thousands of years! The urge to create and beautify is an innately human attribute and its drive has left centuries of evidence! Come experiment with art and its history to gain an unique understanding of the world and our history.
In this fantastic class, students will experience art history ranging from Lascaux Cave paintings through the ages to Monet and beyond to contemporary works by artists like Keith Haring. Each new class session will introduce a new historical art movement by focusing on a quintessential artist or work. The students will dive into a project each week, experimenting with the materials and techniques used by the artists of the time and learning to identify key details and styles throughout history. All semester long, each student will add to a portfolio they will fill with their artworks and major facts and understandings of the evolving art world.
Cost: $164 per semester
Each student will receive a BYL T-shirt (one per student per year)
