Art Classes

Art Adventures with Ms. Murfee

In this class we will dive into EXPRESSIONISM (Klee, Kandinsky, Marc, Klint), SURREALISM (Magritte, Dalí, Miró & Kahlo) and POP ART (Warhol, Lichtenstein, Harring) inspired projects that continue with the timeline in art history. Students will explore how artists began using color in new ways for expression and emotions. They will also learn about the unique dream-like art associated with Surrealism. Bright and bold projects that will bring much excitement to this time period. These lessons focus on portraits, breaking up space with lines and shapes and abstract subjects. Each week we will cover a different artist and their contribution to the art world.
