For this themed course, students will spend a week investigating emotions and narrative story-telling through drawing, collage, painting, and printmaking. Each lesson will begin with the close viewing of artworks in the Museum’s permanent collection, where students will interpret their own meanings of the works. Students will create self-directed artworks in the studio that tell personal and fantastical narratives. Cost: $250. Register here.
