Much fine art is the art of storytelling. In this online class, we will view objects in WAM’s collection virtually and learn how to read visual stories narrated by artists from ancient Athens and Rome to colonial America.  Enter these storied worlds and deepen your appreciation of them.  We will view art of ancient Greece and Rome, the Middle Age, Renaissance, Colonial and early 19th century America and 19th and 20th centuries in America and Europe.
