DESCRIPTION

"How to Look at Art!" is a full-participation course, with guided exercises throughout the day. It does not teach art history, art theories, or art techniques, and it is not a lecture course. Participants are taught, in front of the museum's exhibits, ways to gain confidence in their own visual powers and experience. It offers a method to approach an individual work of art, to give profound aesthetic experiences. This one-day course lasts from 10 am to 4 pm. Dr. Arthur Blumenthal has taught to more than a thousand students since 1989. The workshop uses art history, but it is not strictly a lecture course. Instead, it is a fully participatory course utilizing works of art in The Frost Art Museum's galleries. Blumenthal, director emeritus of the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, teaches students a method of how to approach an individual work of art using their own visual powers and experience.

Fee: $35 Frost Art Museum members / $50 non-members, / $10 for FIU students and faculty. Limited spaces available. By RSVP only
