Art Appreciation: Cross Cultural Ways of Knowing Art: Session 2
Ages 18 +
Session 2: Three Saturdays, November 9 - 23
1 - 3 PM
Explore how artists in different cultures communicate themes of power, status, beauty, and spirituality. Lively discussions, gallery visits, and writing exercises will provide a deeper understanding of why artists create and what meanings their creations hold. The focus will be on appreciating European, Asian, and African artworks in the Crocker's permanent collection. Due to popular demand, this class is offered on Thursday afternoons and Saturday afternoons. The different sessions cover identical content, though you are welcome to enroll in both.
