Maybe you’ve heard of the “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci, or “Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh, but what happened to art after that? What are artists even doing now-a-days? This six week Introduction to Contemporary Art class will take us on a trip of answering those very questions. Review the contemporary art timeline, learn new terminology (which will make you way cooler at [zoom] parties), implement the elements of design into your own work, and challenge what you knew art to be. Contemporary art is what’s happening now, join the class and become part of the movement!
Examples of artists and artwork we’ll discuss include Richard Hamilton (Pop Art), Walter De Maria (Earth Art), Jean-Michel Basquiat (Graffiti Art), and Alberto Seveso (21st c.). And that’s just through week 2!
