Description

Week 1- July 8th-12th, 2019

Edgar Degas- Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Tuition $325

Edgar Degas was a reluctant Impressionist. He enjoyed color and light effects as well as scenes of urban leisure. He loved working from the figure and he is most know for his works featuring horse racing and the ballet. Due to Degas infatuation with color and form as well as his strong classical tendencies he created wax sculptures as studies and fleshed out his initial drawings by developing elaborate pastels paintings.

Participants in the Edgar Degas week will concentrate on color and form as the focus of making art. Students will investigate Degas favorite themes and media by use of gestures and movement through wax sculpture studies and color through pastel painting.
