Understanding Contemporary Visual Art

“Art isn’t life, art makes us realize what life is” – Picasso

What is the poetry of contemporary visual art?  We’ll look at creativity in visual art and gain an understanding of contemporary art in reputable art museums.  Participants will be given the tools to continue their sustained understanding and growth in contemporary visual art.   The instructor, as a contemporary visual artist, will provide insight into the process of creating the visual feast of art.  The course will also answer the questions that the young people in your life might have about art schools.  Finally, we’ll look at the connection between visual art, poetry, research science and music.
