Class of 2025 Recreates Famous Artwork

Each year, Professor Richard Harris’s Western Culture II class participates in an art project that challenges students to recreate an illustration or painting.

This year, the Class of 2025 recreated artwork from the post-Impressionist period or later from artists such as Franco Costa, Marc Chagall, and Henri Matisse. The class is designed to help students develop their critical eye and appreciation for art and the sense of composition and color.

Students carefully study the original work, break them down and recreate them using their own techniques and understanding. They paid attention to details that might otherwise be overlooked – translating into their own creative process.

Upon completion, the students’ work was exhibited in the Visconti Reception Room during graduation week, June 12-19. The exhibit was a testament to their creativity and hard work.
