What is Contemporary Art? In-School Program

Simply put, contemporary art is the art of our time. But how do we begin to understand its often challenging forms and content? Looking at images of contemporary work by a variety of artists, students will explore the vocabulary, materials and technology of current art practices and learn to pose questions to gain insight into the nature of visual culture and the changing role of art and artists in society over time. Students will contribute to a collaborative work of contemporary art that tests the boundaries and definitions of art and asks questions of its own.rn2 hoursrn$7/student
