Crash Course in Art History


 

Learn and Do

 

Join us on a journey, starting with the cave paintings in France and ending with Bridget Riley's painted stripes.  We'll hop through the centuries and decades, learning interesting facts about the artists along the way.  What did Michelangelo think about being landed the job of painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel?  Who were the Fauves and how have they influenced art today?  After flying through history, we will all create an artwork influenced by one of the artists we learned about.

Think you aren't good at drawing?  It doesn't matter!  Some of us have put up barriers due to a bad experience with art making.  This lesson will help to overcome that.  Do you love making art?  Great!  Perhaps you will learn something new and can then repeat that back home.

It has been proven that creating art relieves stress, focuses the mind, encourages us to become creative problem solvers and so much more.

The workshop is divided into two sessions.  First we learn about an artists or a few artists and their work, then we create our own artwork inspired by what we've learned.

Who is this workshop for?

Everyone!  But to narrow that down, here is a list:

- Team Building Groups

- Businesses who observe Mental Awareness Week and are interested in bringing something new and fun into the workplace

- Special events (birthday parties, hen parties, just because parties)

- Educational events (especially for those teachers that might not have a good grasp of art and art history due to the other hundreds of things you are teaching in class)

My Experience:

I have been teaching in different countries, workshops, and schools over the past 17 years.  Big groups, small groups, groups made of families, adults, children.  Teaching what I know brings me great joy.
