Michelangelo: The First Modern Artist? (Online Course)

Michelangelo is one of art history’s earliest true “characters” and his influence on art continues to be unparalleled. Everybody knows his name. But how much do you really know about him? He was a polymath genius who is widely regarded to be one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance. Often temper driven, fickle, and difficult—he nevertheless found lifelong support by the era’s most renowned patrons and produced some of the world’s most iconic masterpieces. More recently, discoveries of his work now place him at the forefront of modern art! Take this class to find out why—and to go far beyond what you think you know about Michelangelo. He was a highly complex individual, with a fascinating history, and an artistry that sets him apart from all others.

Matisse: A World of Colors and Patterns (Online Course)

Henri Matisse is widely regarded as the greatest colorist of the 20th century and as a rival to Pablo Picasso in the importance of his innovations. He first achieved prominence as the leader of the French movement Fauvism—but his long career would take him in many different directions. Matisse sought to use color as the foundation for expressive, decorative, and often monumental paintings. He also made significant contributions to collage and sculpture. “What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity…” Did he achieve it? Take this class to find out!

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
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
