Italian Art Classes
MYSTERIES OF ITALIAN ART
Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffaello . . . Italian artists have produced some of humanity’s greatest art, images that convey the vast range of human experience.
Looking closely at paintings and sculpture from ancient to contemporary Italy, Collina Italiana students will investigate objects from the world’s most important collections, learning about Italian history and culture in the process.
The series includes celebrated and lesser-known masterpieces, selected to provoke curiosity and inspire lively conversation—in other words, fun! The five sessions will meet once a month for a 90-min session, with a break for prosecco and snacks.
