After an introduction and confirmation that the students are comfortable moving about in VR, we will discuss the events leading up to Impressionism. We will look at works by these artists and discuss how they differed from the ‘acceptable’ art of the time. We will sort artworks by subject matter, style, and use of color. We will also look for signs of styles to come. A field trip through an Impressionist painting ends the session.
