What you'll learn in this art theory class:

Develop the ability to view and critique art, awakening your capacity to understand artwork of different cultures, periods and styles. In addition, you'll learn how to create a portfolio from the point of view of a dealer, including materials, cover letters, content statements, and CDs. 

Visits to museums and galleries, as well as lectures on the history of art, video and photography will immerse you in the city's abundance of cultural possibilities.

Important Things to Note: 
  • Certain classes will be held at locations outside of the school and away from the school, in galleries, museums, and artists’ studios or at a specific art or architecture installation in the city.
  • Dates and places will be told a week in advance. 
  • It is required that students supply an email address or preferred method of contact in case there is a change of location to meet. We will also be in the class to work experiment, and feel free to expand the things that we have seen and to discuss. 
  • Students will be asked to write back to me a short self-presentation and answer 2 questions that I will write on my presentation. Students will be required to print a reasonably priced portfolio sample on their own work
