About the Program
Go behind the scenes and virtually visit the studios of several contemporary artists, each working to educate and unify the world. In this thought-provoking class, explore a brilliantly diverse range of new work in painting, photography, collage, and beyond. Reflect on social issues and connect with your classmates as you discover personal solutions to the question, “How can art serve to heal?”
