I have been wanting to teach an Art class to adults for years. I have found an art school that is accepting class ideas and if mine is selected I get to teach the class. My degree is in Art History so naturally I want to incorporate an element of Art History into my class.
My proposal is this, if you were to read the following class title and short description which class would you (pay money to) take? Make your choice and comment now, I will select a random winner to receive a Journal featuring my artwork, of course.
Art with Cultural Relevance: Using current events we will create a culturally relevant piece of art. After seeing examples of this from Art History you will pick a topic to depict. Keeping in mind that we want to create buzz and discussion about your cause, the art will also need to be technically polished and beautiful. As a class we will discover our voice with art. All mediums and skill levels welcome.
Creating a triptych: One painting is great but three is more fun in this case. This class will look at examples from Art History, we will explore the advantages and disadvantages to making triptyphs, as well as the impact and possible motivation to make these elaborate works of art. Everyone will create three acrylic on canvas paintings meant to be hung together as one piece of art.
