Figure & Symbol


"Figure and Symbol: From the Cave to the Studio" is a unique international course exploring deep historical sources of figurative art and its contemporary practice. The linked courses in Studio and Art History combine an intensive studio experience focusing on the human form with an anthropological and multicultural approach to figurative art and the first-hand study of Paleolithic cave painting. The quarter-long course starts and ends on campus and in-between travels to France for a 28-day program featuring a residential intensive studio program, visits to Paleolithic art sites, and five days exploring art in Paris.


Monday, November 28 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
