This is a virtual class that will be taught live on Zoom. 

Art Nouveau is characterized by its use of natural themes, wild ‘whiplash’ curves, and dreamy ornate decorations. It took art and craft and blended the two together, creating all manner of beautiful objects ranging from doorknobs to textiles to paintings. Gustav Klimt was a painter, muralist, and sketch artist who broke with the subdued conventions of his time and created decadent paintings full of complex patterns and color and gold leaf. Our artist instructor will demonstrate some of the stylized techniques used by Klimt, Mucha, Gaudi, and Mackintosh-Macdonald among others to create the lush organic designs of the Art Nouveau Movement.

This virtual class is for ages 12-18. Registration is required. You will receive information about attending the online program via email.

This is a virtual class that will be taught live on Zoom. 

American Modernism (similar to Modernism) is a movement that supports the idea that humans have the power to create, improve, and reshape their environment with the aid of scientific knowledge, technology and practical experimentation. Georgia O’Keefe studied the physical makeup of natural and industrial objects and magnified them with a slight tendency towards abstraction. Examples of American Modernist works will be shown during the class and some of O’Keefe’s painting techniques will be demonstrated live by the instructor.
