Harwood offers community art class

The Harwood Museum of Art in Taos presents an eight-week class, “American Art: Pre-Modern to Postmodern,” Mondays in March and continuing the first four Mondays in May. Join artist and art historian Jan Janeiro for a lively, informative class on the history of American Art from the 1600s to present. The class will be held in the museum from 1-3:30 p.m.

“Jan Janeiro is a gifted teacher with a diverse knowledge of the history of art from all over the world and thus is able to pull different concepts and themes into this class,” said museum educator Lucy Perera-Adams.

Coursework begins with the Spanish Colonial religious art and continues to Postmodernism. The class was originally designed to provide a solid background in American Art for Harwood Museum docents, but due to popularity, was expanded to the public. The class is free for current docents as well as those committed to becoming docents. For others, the fee is $200, or $150 for Harwood Alliance Members.

To register, call Lucy Perera-Adams 758-9826, ext 105.

The Harwood Museum is located at 238 Ledoux St. Taos. Museum Hours are Tues-Sat 10-5; Sun 12-5. Admission $6; free on Sundays to New Mexico residents.
