If you are already involved in the creative arts you will be able to view art with a new appreciation, identifying particular styles and techniques that can be used to develop your own artistic work.
What happens in the class (format/activities) There will be lots of different activities during the classes including plenty of opportunity to critically examine the message that a particular artist is trying to express through their chosen medium.
