Title: Contemporary Art Lessons

Contemporary Art Lessons
  • Contemporary art takes in many movements from the
    1900s onward and features prominent artists such
    as Andy Warhol. Lessons on the subject can be
    beneficial not only to art students, but to
    anyone seeking a starting point in art history or
    creation. Prices for lessons differ by location,
    with some museums conducting special programs for
    members.

  • Locations
  • Students wishing to take contemporary art lessons
    can choose to attend onsite classes or study over
    the Internet. Online courses are good for those
    with time issues. Museums such as the and
    Sotheby's Institute of Art offer this as an
    option for those who wish to achieve degrees and
    for causal art enthusiasts. Other lessons and
    courses take place at the actual museum or art
    center location. For example, the Museum of
    Modern Art in New York provides both day and
    evening lessons. Studio art lessons cover a
    particular artist or subject matter, while
    providing hands-on work in a studio to create
    projects that reflect the subject. Some local art
    studios also offer opportunities to create your
    own work, in addition to offering lessons.

  • Age Groups
  • There are options for all age groups in the world
    of contemporary art. Children can take part in
    summer camps for the arts. Contemporary art
    lesson plans are also available through some
    museums and through PBS. Some of the subjects
    covered in the plans include abstraction and
    realism. The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art
    has lesson plans that are divided into grade
    levels -- for example, What Is Popular? and Self
    Portraits in the Style of Roy Lichtenstein.
    Adults can take lessons that are more advanced
    than those for teens and children. One such
    course is Experimenting With Art at the Visual
    Arts Center of New Jersey. This allows the
    student to use a different medium of art each
    week of a 10-week course.

  • Materials
  • The materials in use for contemporary art vary by
    artist. Lessons help to show those studying the
    subject how to properly incorporate these
    resources into their own projects. Some items,
    such as cameras, may require extra lessons to
    master their capabilities. In studying
    abstraction and realism, a student can use
    photography, collage, drawing and painting to
    convey his vision with materials ranging from
    stickers to canvas.

  • Media
  • A medium is the material or the procedure that an
    artist uses to complete an artwork. Lessons may
    cover just one medium, such as sculpture or
    painting. Mixed media deals with several
    materials combined at one time for artwork. For
    example, a specific lesson may show how to put
    together a collage project with photos and
    recycled objects.
