Art is Us 2015 week 1

The first session of the “Art is Us” art history class for Spring 2015 was held on Thursday, March 19, with 15 people attending. Dick’s goal for the course is for students to develop an eye for independent viewing of any artwork, to be able to look at any painting and bring an objective analysis to it – more than just “I like it” or “I don’t like it.” Dick is an artist, not an art historian, and will emphasize visual and tactile aspects. The course is not about names, dates, and other facts, which can be easily found on the internet and need not be memorized.
