Class of 2024 Recreates Famous Artwork

Each year, Professor Richard Harris’s Western Culture II class participates in an art project that requires them to recreate a painting or illustration. The goal of the project is for the students to learn to look closely at-and really see a work of art, as well as acquire a better sense of the roles of composition and color.

This year, the Class of 2023 recreated a painting or illustration from the Post-Impressionist period or later by artists such as Franco Costa, Marc Chagall, and Henri Matisse.

Upon completion, each student’s work of art was exhibited in the Visconti Reception Room during graduation week, June 13-20.
