STUDIO Art:

Ages 12 – 18

This hands-on homeschool class will focus on teaching students how to ‘see’ and ‘analyze’ as an artist and using those skills to execute detail-oriented assignments. The Elements and Principles of Design will be emphasized, and students will use them in explaining their work and processes. Rather than making ‘art’, the class will focus on grasping artistic perception and execution.

This class will start at 10am September 23 and will be every other Wednesday. Classes will take place on Zoom.

Music as an Art Prompt:

Ages 6 – 11

This exciting homeschool class will focus on teaching students about the art-music movements through the years. They will listen to the period music and create art with the movement in mind. The students will gain knowledge of music and art by doing so through art prompts.

This class will start at 11am September 23 and will be every other Wednesday. Classes will take place on Zoom.

BEHIND THE SCENES:

BILLIE HOLIDAY PERFORMING AT SUGAR HILL:

PHOTOGRAPHS BY JERRY DANTZIC

In April 1957, photographer Jerry Dantzic had an assignment from Decca Records to photograph Billie Holiday during a weeklong run of performances at the Newark, New Jersey, nightclub, Sugar Hill. What unfolded was an unexpected and intimate journey into her private and public worlds. His photos comprise the largest collection of images from any single Billie Holiday club engagement.

 

Please join our Zoom lecture to hear his son, Grayson Dantzic offer his insights into this amazing exhibition and the backstory of its creation.

Art and Mythology:

Art throughout history, and even somewhat in contemporary expression, has been largely influenced by various mythologies. Whether Ancient Greek or Roman mythology, Japanese lore, or even Germanic histories, the visual expression of people throughout time largely reflected their religion—and the myths surrounding its development. Please join us to learn more about the fascinating world of mythology, and how art has played an important didactic role in the retelling of these stories. Don’t miss part II of this fantastic lecture series on December 17, 2020.
