Drawing Art History Online Class - July Class Package

Online Art and Art History Class

Watch your own art style evolve and deepen as you become immersed in the great art movements in history. Break out of the present time period and relive history through your own personal creative interpretation as inspired by some of the world's most influential artists. The July 2021 live online art classes (held on Zoom) feature Norman Rockwell, Thomas Cole, Roy Lichtenstein, and Helen Frankenthaler. 

About Drawing Art History

Each Drawing Art History class starts with an in-depth lesson and slideshow about a different celebrated artist. Enjoy learning about the artist's background and contribution to art history from Barbara's passionate and enthusiastic viewpoint. Students will come away with a better understanding of how the artist's life events and environments shaped their work.

Then, Barbara will teach you to duplicate one of their iconic artworks in pastel (or the medium of your choice). She breaks down the method that the artist used so you can create artwork in their signature style.
