Solve the Mystery: Finding Evidence in a Visual Work of Art
Friday, Oct. 1, 2-3 p.m ET
Have you ever seen a painting or sculpture and thought to yourself, "I wonder what the artist meant?" Many works of art contain clues that help viewers "read" and understand the work at a deeper level, but it takes some practice to develop those skills. Such visual analysis skills are essential for any artist or designer to learn from previous creators in their disciplines. In this workshop with SCAD associate dean Denise Smith, learn how to analyze a work of art, find clues, and construct a theory about the deeper meaning of the piece.
