MODERN EXPERIMENTS: SYMBOLISM—FUTURISM—and the ASHCAN SCHOOL 

 During the decades before 1900—and into the twentieth century—Impressionism and Post-Impressionism were largely rejected in favor of other avant-garde groups. The Symbolists believed that art should aim to capture broader absolute truths—spiritual and cultural—which could only be accessed through indirect methods—not visual realities. They painted metaphorically, imbuing particular images or objects with symbolic meanings. In Italy, Futurism developed—art that was a celebration of the machine age. The Futurists glorified war and fascism—largely for shock value—and focused on movement and dynamic forms. In America, pastoral and pretty country scenes—and paintings of elite society—were somewhat scorned. Some artists felt that ‘life’ had migrated to the cities, raising a host of issues that should be addressed by art. The ‘New York Realists’ painted urban scenes of alleys, tenements, slum dwellers, and street kids. Their subject matter (and their palettes) led to their being dubbed the ‘Ashcan School’—a title that stuck! This week, before we move on to the ‘big five’ movements of Modern Art, we’ll explore these equally as fascinating experiments in modernism.

THE ROOTS OF MODERNISM: A NEED FOR BREAKING WITH TRADITION

 

There were forward thinking artists well before the “official” avant-garde artists emerged in the 19th century. This week we’ll be looking at some of the most significant breakaway artists of the past, going as far back as the 13th century. We’ll see how (and why) the need to do something ‘new’ was articulated throughout time—and we’ll also look at the motivations behind some Modernists’ complete rejection of the past. What we’ll disccover is that innovation doesn’t have a start or end date—and that there were “modern” artists in every era!

 IMPRESSIONISM and POST-IMPRESSIONISM: LEAVING THE DOOR AJAR

The need to break free from academic traditions led some artists to aggressively challenge the establishment. Édouard Manet wanted to paint pictures about contemporary life and people—in his own way. Claude Monet wanted to paint exactly what he saw—precisely the way he saw it—without doing any preliminary sketching. Other artists, such as Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, and Pierre Auguste Renoir were inspired to develop their own approaches. At its heart, Impressionism was a movement primarily focused on capturing the fleeting aspects of color and light. Post-Impressionism—including such brilliant individuals as Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, and Paul Gauguin—both embraced and rejected Impressionism—by concentrating more on structure and content. But together, these movements opened a door that would lead to modernism. Join us to find out why and how!

ART OF THE ‘WILD BEASTS’: FAUVISM

This week we’ll explore Fauvism—a style of painting that flourished from 1898 to 1908, and which is widely regarded as the first Modern movement. The Fauves used pure, brilliant color—applied straight from paint tubes in an aggressive, direct manner—to create the sense of an explosion on canvas. The Fauves largely painted from nature, as the Impressionists had done before them, but their works were invested  with a strong, highly expressive reaction to the subjects they painted. Henri Matisse was their leader, and other Fauve artists include Maurice de Vlaminck, Kees van Dongen and André Derain. Join us to find out why this innovative group of painters were called the “wild beasts”!

OIL STICKS: PURE PIGMENTS----- PURE PAINTING

OIL STICKS: PURE PIGMENTS----- PURE PAINTING
Ages

In this series of workshops, you’ll create a painting on canvas using oil sticks. These are traditional oil pigments that have simply been processed into stick form. You can use them like crayons, you can thin them, you can dip into them, as you would any other painting palette, or you can combine all of these techniques. All of the oil stick painting techniques are executed right on your canvas—from thick “impasto” applications to delicate washes. This class will teach you all of the options. You’ll find that it’s a thoroughly enjoyable way to paint!
