The Frick Collection | Fall/Winter Courses 2011-12: Lee PaTTERSON, Text, Image, Interpretation

October 26, 2011

This fall, The Frick Collection is offering Courses for educators, university students, and recent graduates. I hope you will share the following information with your members.

A full listing of fall Courses is listed below and also attached. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and we hope to see your members at the Frick this season!

Drawing Lessons from the Old Masters

Tuesdays, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., October 11, 18 & 25 and November 1 & 8

Kit White, artist

Artist Kit White will instruct participants on how an artist sees, thinks, and learns from the Old Master painters and sculptors represented in The Frick Collection. Materials will be provided. Recommended for art students.

Introduction to the Decorative Arts

Thursdays, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., October 27 and November 3 & 10

Charlotte Vignon, Associate Curator of Decorative Arts, The Frick Collection

Have you ever wondered what makes a chair, a clock, or a piece of porcelain a work of art? Explore these questions as you study and appreciate the many objects that compose Henry Clay Frick’s collection. Recommended for students of art history.

Text, Image, Interpretation

Tuesdays, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., November 8, 15 & 29

Lee Patterson, Frederick W. Hilles Professor Emeritus of English, Yale University

The relation of works of art to their textual “sources” is far from simple. Can we always identify with certainty what text is the source? Does the text provide a reliable guide to interpretation, or does the artwork revise or even contradict the text? These and similar questions will be explored through close examination of three Frick masterworks and the texts that are thought to be their inspiration. Recommended for students of art history and literature.

On the Experience of a Work of Art

Thursdays, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., January 5, 12 & 19

Rika Burnham, Head of Education, The Frick Collection

This three-session course will closely examine several masterworks in the galleries of The Frick Collection. With this shared looking as a collective point of departure, explore philosopher John Dewey’s notion of aesthetic experience, in which the work of art itself defines “an experience” separate and distinct from daily life. Recommended for museum and arts educators and students of museum studies.

Attached is an application for Fall/Winter 2011–12 Courses. To register for a course, please e-mail your completed application to the attention of Anna Finley, Education Assistant, at students. Courses are free, but there is a non-refundable $25 (per course) materials fee. The materials fee will be collected once applicants have been notified of their enrollment status.
