20th CENTURY ARTIST
This course will explore the life and work of these three internationally recognized Spanish artists within the wider framework of the European art movements at the turn of the 20th Century. Students will learn about the life and works of Picasso, DalÍ and Miró. These artists will be studied first as young students in Madrid in the Residencia de Estudiantes and then as avant-garde young painters wrestling between acceptance and rejection of their artistic works.
Students will learn about the influence French art and French artists had on their personal and artistic lives, while gaining an understanding of the tumultuous sociopolitical and artistic context of Europe in the first half of the 20th Century. They will explore the general influences shared amongst the three of them, but they will also learn about each of the artist´s particular style.
The course will include visits to different museums and collections in different sites.
Online Sessions: It is a three-week program where students cover the content of the course online through synchronous classes meeting weekly with the professor and classmates in real time. Students can do individual work as well as collaborative work on specific topics and projects.
Onsite immersion: As a conclusion of the program students will participate in a two-week immersion program in Madrid, Spain. This capstone experience will allow participants to enjoy a full direct learning, visiting all cultural and historical sites subject of study as well as meeting all partners, experts and guest that participated in the previous part of the program.
Spanish Language Class: Students enrolled in this program can benefit from an additional optional Spanish Class where they will have the opportunity to improve their Spanish Language Skills and get introduced to the culture of Spain.
