Art is the expression of an idea, concept, or experience through a visual object using skill and imagination. Also known as visual art, it encompasses a range of media including painting, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing skills.

Our course is focused on Art through lived experience. Our members enjoy the unique opportunity to learn in a relaxed social setting and experience Art in a cultural context through Renaissance Academy’s exclusive Course Excursions.
