For four weeks, this engaging class will delve into four different important periods of art. What defines the period? How does the work relate to other world events at the time? Who are or were the patrons? What characteristics are evident in the works in each group? We plan to discuss the Italian High Renaissance, The Impressionists, Modernism, and American Schools.

Dates for this class are: August 10, 10-11:30; August 17, 10-11:30; August 24, 10-11:30; and August 31, 10-11:30.

Preregistration is required and space is limited. To register, please phone BRAHM on 828.295.9099. Registration will close on Tuesday August 2 at 5 p.m.
