Summer Art Camp 2022: Week 6

Wassily Kandinsky; Composition VIII, 1923

The Baltics and Beyond: Eastern Europe

July 18 – July 22

The rich culture and art of the countries found in Eastern Europe will be our inspiration this week as we travel from Germany and Poland to Lithuania and Ukraine and beyond. We will visit the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, one of the finest and largest art museums in the world, with collections ranging from Impressionist masterpieces to fascinating Oriental treasures, be enthralled by the grand architecture of Budapest, or enchanted by the traditional papercut crafts of Lithuania. The rich and varied history of these countries will inspire us as we learn about the art unique to this area, such as the beautiful, gilded icon paintings, traditional Ukrainian painted eggs called Pysanky, amazing architecture, including the unique St. Basil’s Cathedral, and artists who called this region home. Artists: Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Isaac Levitan, Gustave Klimpt, Albrecht Durer.
