FCMOA Art Class:
Understanding Art: What’s it All About?
New for 2017! The Fort Collins Museum of Art is hosting two adult Art Appreciation courses, one in the spring and one in the fall. Designed for adults with little prior knowledge of the visual arts or for those desiring a refresher, these courses will provide participants with an introductory understanding of the visual arts and offer opportunities to engage in art-related conversations. If you desire to make your next gallery or museum visit more meaningful or to simply understand the art that surrounds us, these courses are just the thing.
Each course consists of five class meetings, held at the museum on alternating Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:15 PM.
Fall Session Classes
The fall session consists of five class meetings, held at the museum on alternating Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:15 PM. A list of optional readings will be distributed at the first class meeting. Classes are led by Margaret Sharkoffmadrid, a member of the FRCC Art History faculty and a Consultant for the Advanced Placement® Art History program.
Cost is $50 per course (five classes); fee includes admission to the FCMoA on class days. Museum members receive a $10 discount. Space is limited to 20 participants; please call 970-482-2787 for registration information.
