How might art help us think about the world we share? Join us for Crash Course, an 18-week series of art survey classes divided into nine two-week units. This extensive series is only offered once every four years.
Novice and experienced learners alike will learn to think critically and creatively about works of art and the role they play in our lives and society. Discussions include art and architecture from Ancient Greece and Medieval Europe, Impressionism and the influence of Japanese prints, American artists and movements, and the impact of our present moment. Learners will develop an understanding of the works intended functions, the artists, and the historical moment in which they were created. Each unit is grounded in Carnegie Museum of Art’s collection of paintings, sculpture, photographs, prints, architecture, and decorative arts.
Can’t attend in person? Don’t worry, each of the units will be recorded and available online for registrants two weeks following each class.
You can earn Act 48(external link) activity hours for participating in this program. Email Maisha Johnson, senior manager, youth and family teaching and learning, to request an application.
