The Ideas That Built America
Each week we will explore the ideas that have built America through the arts and culture of each major period/movement, starting with the early pilgrim settlers to the modern era. We will explore the works of great American artists like Longfellow, Mark Twain, Winslow Homer, and Aaron Copland. Students will have the opportunity to make their own works of art related to the pieces and ideas we explore in class. Students need no previous experience in art, music or art history to enjoy this program.
(Please note that history does have some mature content and while we will be very sensitive to this, the suggested age range for the class should be taken into consideration.)
