An Exploration of “ISMs” will transport participants on a trip through the world of art’s famous “isms”; Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism and Impressionism in this session. Through these vastly different periods of art history, we will create masterpieces in the style of greats like Goya, Renoir and Degas.

The Masters of Modern Art: Particpants will learn how the artists of the twentieth century pushed the boundaries of the art world with the bright colors of the Modern Art Era.
