Have you ever stood in front of a painting in a museum and wished you could say more than “ that’s nice?” In the first session, we will examine a variety of well-known representational paintings and develop a technique and vocabulary with which to examine and appreciate the paintings. For the second session, we will meet at the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg. Here you will have the chance to analyze Remington’s paintings by applying the techniques studied in the first class.

Dagmar Jaunzems has an MA in art history. She taught art at a high school in Toronto, Canada, and more recently she has been an adjunct teacher of Art History at SLU and SUNY Potsdam. Dagmar is a docent at the Frederic Remington Art Museum.

NOTES: 1) Museum entrance fee $7 cash or check (to “Frederic Remington Art Museum”); fee will be collected at the first class. 2) Museum location: 303 Washington St. (corner of State St. and across from the library by the water).
