  1. Supply List

By Renee Sandell

Experience art in a new way and discover deeper visual meanings as you relate selected art works to your life experience. In group discussions and creative studio activity, find new inspiration in works of art while developing your skills in decoding (reading) and encoding (expressing) visual meaning. In each session, explore a selected work of art from the Smithsonian and other collections. The selections serve as the basis for hands-on, expressive mark-making and drawing exercises in a variety of artistic media and techniques. The class culminates in a hands-on project: creating a memoir triptych consisting of visual pages capturing a significant life experience.

No art experience necessary; Open to all levels.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
