The Barnes-de Mazia Education Program uses an inquiry-based method to encourage students of all ages to develop their visual and analytical skills. Students debate, exchange ideas, and discover new ways of seeing and thinking.
Take classes individually or as part of the certificate program. Courses are grouped into three categories: The Barnes Method (Category I) focuses on rigorous formal analysis; Understanding Materials and Techniques (Category II) explores the physical aspects of how art is made; and Art in Context (Category III) approaches works of art as a reflection of history, culture, and politics.
• The Elements of Art (14 weeks)—in Category I
• Collections Concentration (14 weeks)—in Category I
• Traditions (14 weeks)—in Category I
• one 4-week class from Category II
• one 4-week class from Category III
