History in the PM

History presentations

Making Art History

Micro art + history classes

Making Art History is an exciting new program for artists and history aficionados. Each class starts with a brief lesson on art’isms’ (art movements) or artists in history (as well as contemporary artists), followed by a beginner friendly art project that allows participants to further immerse themselves in and understand the subject matter.
