Exploring the Visual Arts

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Thoughtful discussion of art asks: How is it part of the history of its time? Does it represent fact or fiction? When is it a message delivery mechanism? What may have been the artist’s intent — compared to what meaning we may place on the work? Most importantly art is fun! In this study group, the coordinators present the first few subjects of the established curriculum while welcoming suggestions based on participants’ interest. Our subject changes weekly based on the art chosen by the presenter. There is no assigned reading other than what a presenter may suggest. Participants are encouraged to share their opinions on the weekly topic which could be painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, art movements, or creative technique. Participants are encouraged to bring something new and personal to the study of art. Presenters develop talking points on their chosen artwork or subject, preparing a mix of still images and video. As needed, the coordinators assist in content preparation. Recent or upcoming topics include: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Giacometti, Murals, Land Art, Faith Ringgold, Indigenous Art Histories of Chicagoland. This study group has a spring roster of intriguing subjects including historic and modern figures of astounding imagination, creativity, and sometimes mystery.
