This class spans the school year and meets every Thursday from 12:30-3:00pm
In this fun and rigorous class we travel through time to study major US and global historical events and movements. We use the art that was created in response to these events as an entry point for learning and discussion. The focus is on contemporary and historical artists of all cultures who work with a variety of media including printmaking, street art, sculpture, painting, drawing, installation, and more. Students will respond to what they're learning by creating artworks that reflect their own style and perspective on various topics while also expressing their understanding of how art and history work together to help people make sense of and reflect upon their experiences.
