The Six-Hour Art Major
The Six-Hour Art Major gives you unique insight into visual art and its creative process by providing the opportunity to “attend” art school in a condensed form—thereby gaining an understanding of visual art from the artist’s point of view. The course consists of two three-hour sessions and touches on all the main subjects covered in the quintessential art school core curriculum. Hands-on exercises not only demonstrate the basic “how-tos” of drawing, but they also explain the different concepts and thought processes behind making representational, abstract, and nonrepresentational art. Explore how artists find their ideas and inspiration, how a work of art develops, and what being creative actually entails. The second part of the course is an overview of art history, focusing on the function of art through the ages and art appreciation—how to approach, analyze, and appreciate a work of art.
