THE SIX-HOUR ART MAJOR is art
school—condensed. It has been offered at many highly-regarded venues throughout the tristate area, including SOHO HOUSE, 92ND STREET Y, HUNTER COLLEGE, SUNY PURCHASE, . THE SIX-HOUR ART MAJOR is offered either in its entirety
or in two three-hour sessions. A three-hour mini-version is
available. NO PREVIOUS ART EDUCATION/TRAINING REQUIRED. AVAILABLE FOR PRIVATE AND CORPORATE ENGAGEMENTS.
Just some of the things you'll discover:
• How are making realistic and abstract art different?
• What’s the strangest ingredient ever used to make oil paint?
• When was the very first portrait done?

THE SIX-HOUR ART MAJOR answers these questions, and many, many more. Are there left-brain and right-brain thinking people? What do art and yoga have in common? The seminar features over 250 works spanning the entire history of art, and participants have the opportunity to tackle hands-on drawing exercises.
