That's Not Art! with Jasmine Partida

That’s Not Art!

An appreciation of art through the modern masters. That’s Not Art! is a fun, hands-on, class that allows students to experiment with technique while learning about the greats. Each class students will take home 1-2 of their own works for art!

Focusing on enjoying the artistic process, and not judging your own work, this class introduces students to modern greats such as Warhol, Cezanne, and Georgia O’Keefe. We will learn to recognize famous works of art that can be found in SFMOMA, the de Young, and the Legion of Honor. Please come ready to get your hands messy. All abilities welcome! This is an inclusive class.
