The Yellow Door is excited to bring you a unique learning experience this fall! We are offering a 5 week Art History course focusing on the Italian Renaissance taught by Paige Conn. Paige has been an art educator for over 25 years, working in school and museum settings. She has traveled extensively throughout Italy and is an accomplished travel blogger. Attending a class will be a great way to learn and have a bit of a travel experience from someone who has first hand knowledge of the subject matter! Sign up for all classes or pick and choose ones that pique your interest! No passport required!
* We will be meeting in person and are taking all precautions to assure the safety of everyone involved. Mask wearing is required by the state of Texas. But thank goodness we won't have to look at each other through the dreaded zoom lens.
. Legends of the Renaissance
Dark Ages getting you down? Come listen, discuss and explore the Italian Renaissance and experience a “rebirth” of your own.
Legends of the Renaissance is a five-week, sequential course, but each week stands on its own. Each week will have specific topics, handouts and PowerPoint. At the end of the five-week course, sign up for the “hands-on art” night and create your own Renaissance inspired masterpiece.
