How to Be an Avant-G’artist ( 5th – 6th )
Hop in, we’re taking a ride through art history. Together we’ll meet the masters of modern art and learn how ( and why ) they made their work. In this class, we celebrate the strange and unusual; the brave and the bold. Applying art appreciation to daily life, we will learn how to pay closer attention to the beauty in our world, and ourselves.
