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 develop a portfolio from the point of view of a gallery 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 New York City’s abundance of cultural possibilities.

Registration fee included.

Material List:
  • No particular supplies are required.
  • A notebook and a pen may be enough.
  • When students will present their works, a flash drive or a DVD or a CD will be helpful.
  • Students can use camera, video camera, laptop, recorders, and take advantage of these tools.
  • 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.
