American Modernism ONLINE: The Other Modern Art

American Modernism ONLINE: The Other Modern Art

Modern Art, in general, was a reaction against the traditions of the past. European modernism started to take shape toward the end of the nineteenth century. “American Modernism” refers to an artistic and cultural movement in the United States that began at the turn of the twentieth century, with a core period between World War I and World War II. This 6-week program will examine American modernism’s greatest practitioners to discover its departures from European modernism and its unique brilliance.

PICASSO ONLINE: The Man – The Myth – The Legend

PICASSO ONLINE: The Man – The Myth – The Legend

Join us for this fascinating 5-week Pablo PIcasso online art history class lead by Jill Kiefer, Ph.D. and Bethany Arts Community.
Tuesdays, 10am – 11am September 15th – October 13th.

Spanish expatriate painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and stage designer Pablo Picasso remains the most influential artist of the twentieth century, and is regarded as one of the greatest artists of all time. The creator (with Georges Braque) of Cubism, Picasso continues to be a figure hotly debated–but always admired. In this course, we’ll examine the tumultuous life and works of the inseparable man and artist, who was–by far–the most prolific artistic genius in history. (To date, 34,073 artworks by Picasso have been catalogued.) We’ll also be looking at the many myths that surround this rather enigmatic figure–and do our best to separate the facts from the fictions!

Metal Clay Jewelry for Beginners with Instructor Barbara Kirby

Metal Clay Jewelry for Beginners with Instructor Barbara Kirby


Metal Clay Jewelry for Beginners with Instructor Barbara Kirby
Classes start May 15th 7–9pm (six consecutive Wednesday evenings)
During the (6)  two-hour classes, participants will learn the process of making jewelry using Metal Clay. Students need no previous knowledge or experience and will have lots of fun creating stunning pieces. Metal Clay is a crafting medium consisting of very small particles of metal mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewelry.  It’s easy to use, fun and non-toxic and is safely worked with one’s hands. The clay is pliable, providing great ease in designing, molding, stamping and carving. Once the clay has been dried, it is then fired in a kiln.  During the firing process the organic binder burns away leaving the pure sintered metal.

All materials are included. ($285 per participant)

Class Dates (7-9pm):
Wednesday, May 15
