Are you a fan of art but uncertain how to talk about it? Do you want to understand more about a painting or sculpture than what the label on the wall tells you about it?

In this slide lecture Jeff Mishur, owner of Art Excursions, offers an introduction to the appreciation of art. He will discuss how to analyze how an artwork is “built” out of colors, lines and similar visual components. He will also discuss basic design principles.
