Explore the vibrant local arts community! In this class students will practice visual art analysis and interpretation by learning about the works of local and contemporary artists. Students will also learn to identify and explain a variety of art media such as painting, sculpture, photography, and installation. Sessions in the classroom will alternate with field trips to local visual art institutions. Students will gain context for the concepts and media studied class by exploring and studying these objects in person. They will also have the opportunity to speak to local artists about their artistic process, methods, and motivation, and may even have the chance to watch the artists at work. Field trip destinations will include the Nasher Museum of Art, Liberty Arts Sculpture Studio and Foundry, and 21C Museum Hotel, as well as local photography and painting galleries Through This Lens, Pleiades, and the Durham Arts Council.
