MAGIC, MYTH AND MONSTERS: THE MIDDLE AGES – Online Course

MAGIC, MYTH AND MONSTERS: THE MIDDLE AGES (and its influences on modernism) with Instructor: Dr. Jill Kiefer
ONLINE ZOOM CLASS – Six Weeks
Tuesdays, April 12 – May 17 – 10:00 – 11:00 AM

The Middle Ages was a remarkable thousand-year-long civilization—underscored by a wholly unique culture and artistic tradition. The art of the era was developed by the people of the day, without much influence from what had preceded it. Medieval art evolved from being incredibly naive to highly sophisticated, and its legacy would be lasting. In this course, we’ll thoroughly explore the exciting art of the medieval world and identify the threads that connect it to subsequent traditions. We’ll see that the art of the Middle Ages has remained very much alive throughout time—and that evolving artistic innovations are quite indebted to it!

Georgia O’Keeffe: The Mother of American Modernism – Instructor: Dr. Jill Kiefer

Georgia O’Keeffe: The Mother of American Modernism – Instructor: Dr. Jill Kiefer

Georgia O’Keeffe played a pivotal role in the development of American modernism and its relationship to European avant-garde movements of the early-20th century. Producing a substantial body of work over seven decades, she sought to capture the emotion and power of objects through abstracting the natural world. O’Keeffe incorporated the techniques of other artists into her work and was especially influenced by photographer Paul Strand and painter Arthur Dove. However, her art is uniquely her own, and she always danced to her own tune. Join us to learn more about this fascinating artist and woman.

Michelangelo: The First Modern Artist? (Online Course)

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.
