NO PREVIOUS ART EDUCATION/TRAINING REQUIRED. FEATURES OVER 250 WORKS OF ART

LECTURES:


WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN YOU LOOK AT ART

This entertaining and fact-filled lecture shows how an artist creates the mood of a painting, and communicates a message in a strictly visual medium.  Learn how to approach a work of art from an artist’s point of view, and find out some of the fascinating stories behind great works of art.  An abbreviated version of this lecture is included in The Six-Hour Art Major.

SEEING THINGS OUR WAY: ART AS PROPAGANDA

Visual art has been employed as propaganda since the days of the early Greeks, often in works that few people now would suspect were intended as such. Learn about how one ruler’s desire to legitimize his position helped to kick-start the Renaissance, and American art’s possible role in the Cold War of the 1950s. Special emphasis is placed on the cataclysmic events of the 20th century, and its demand for art capable of mobilizing multitudes—to fight, to survive, to obey.
