Much fine art is the art of storytelling. In this in-person class, we will view objects in the Worcester Art Museum’s galleries and learn how to read visual stories narrated by artists across the last 5,000 years. Enter these storied worlds and deepen your appreciation of them.

We will examine examples from various ancient cultures as well as European and American art from the Middle Ages through the 20th Century. This course will look at different objects than in the 2021 and 2022 sessions.

Virginia (Ginny) Powell-Brasier was a high school teacher of English and German for 32 years. A big fan of the German Expressionists, she is currently a docent at the Worcester Art Museum.

Bill Shelley is a retired software engineer with a lifelong love of art and history. Since becoming a docent at the Worcester Art Museum, he has enjoyed sharing these interests with others on museum tours and classes.
