Bringing Art to Life

With Guide Luc Travers | Tue & Thu | April 7th - June 4th, 2020 | 12:00 PM EST (11:00 AM Central, 9:00 AM Pacific)

Course Description 
This course is designed for all students—both those who love art as well as those who may not. We will study art from a variety of cultures and time periods, with a focus on art that tells stories—including artworks from Michelangelo, Vermeer, Rodin, Van Gogh, Norman Rockwell, etc…. During our interactive discussions, students will develop key skills, such as “reading” an artwork, “empathizing” with characters, and personally connecting to the theme in a work. The artworks we experience will bring insight to a variety of life’s topics, such as friendship, romance, self-understanding, struggle, loss, success, and more.  Homework will include short (10-minute), fun assignments between classes.
