In January, the course picks up with the Dutch Masters of the early 1600’s . Called the “Winter Session”, the program guides the students to the beginning of the inspirational Impressionists.
The focus is on drawing and painting in this session. Additionally, cultural projects such as Mardi Gras, El Dia de los Muertos, and Easter, as well as fundamental art lessons like a color wheel, and light and shadow drawing are mixed in to all three sessions.
The final session in the year ‘round program culminates knowledge of all that came before in art and in the MASTERWORKS program. From the Impressionists to Contemporary have been explored by the end of the “Spring Session”.
