Young Master Artists Program
School Year Art Program
Symbolism and Modern Art
Drawing and Painting Studies 2019-20

Students will understand the elements of art as they become familiar with the principles of Symbolism.  This style was both an artistic and literary movement that suggested ideas through symbols and emphasized the meaning behind the forms, lines, shapes and colors.

Symbolism can also be seen at the forefront of Modernism, in that it developed new and often abstract means to express psychological truth and the idea that behind the physical world lay a spiritual reality. Students will take their cue from Jewish artist Marc Chagall as they work on a collection of painting and drawings. They will learn to take the ineffable, such as dreams and visions, and give it form just as Chagall did with his dreamy figures floating over Jewish towns and iconic architecture.
