After an introduction and confirmation that the students are comfortable moving about in VR, we will discuss artists’ reactions to Impressionism and the two categories of Post-Impressionists. We will look at works by these artists and discuss how they were influenced by scientific discoveries about color, formal art elements, and emotional use of line and color. We will conclude the session with a trip to the art studio, where we will experiment with Post-Impressionist mark making while creating digital paintings.
