Course Description

Ms. Angevine offers us a painless look at the story of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present. She’ll use lectures, discussion, and visual images to coach us about the art of looking at art, forming questions to ask about what we see, and developing the knack for seeing how art reflects the time and place of its creation. She’ll also comment on what these works from the past have to say to us in our complex present. Don’t expect a rundown of every artist in the art history canon. Ms. Angevine will focus on works that help us explore key genres and their contexts. Allow OLLI and Ms. Angevine to show you how many interesting places art can take us right now!
