Free Art Classes for Fulfillment
Auguste Rodin description of art is very meaningful - “The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live”. There might not be a better way of describing something that can give your life extreme fulfillment, even during a pandemic. Art gives a way to express yourself and a way to get your feelings out in a healthy manner. Not only can it improve your mood, it can be a hobby that you mold and grow over time. The following classes will help improve your artistic knowledge and give you insight of how art has developed.
This class by John Berger takes place in four different 30 minute increments on Youtube. In these classes, Berger looks into how photography has shaped our view of art from the past. This link begins with the first thirty minute class, while the second, third and fourth installations can be found in these links or on Youtube.
