At the Barnes we definitely know that the calendar has changed from summer to fall, not by the nip in the morning air but as we see our adult students return to our Parkway and Merion campuses. We’ve already begun the first sessions of some classes, but in addition to our year-long courses like Introduction to Visual Literacy and semester classes like Matisse: In Color and Light, there’s more rolling out in October, November, and December.
Whether you’re a Barnes alum, an active Barnes student, or are unfamiliar with the great classes we have in art and horticulture and are Barnes curious, these 4-, 6-, and 8-week workshops are great ways to dip your toes into our educational offerings and explore the collections. Next up in October are Botanical Illustration in Merion with Marylyn Waltzer; Van Gogh with Michael Rossman; and Searching for Authenticity with Dr. Ian Bourland, which explores what drove artists like Paul Gauguin and Amedeo Modigliani to look beyond established traditions for inspiration from sources deemed foreign and exotic.
