About the Class

One of the oldest forms of expression and communication, art is more enjoyable when you understand its visual language and more meaningful when you appreciate its relationship to everyday experiences. Learn the aesthetic principles that underlie art and discover its communicative power by studying directly in the Barnes galleries.

Capacity: 18
