Do you like certain types of art and not others, but are unable to say why? Are you interested in visiting galleries and museums, but feel intimidated? Join Gus Sermas, artist and professor emeritus at West Chester University and gain understanding of the basics of art appreciation so you can enjoy looking at and talking about art with more confidence. Gus will reference the artwork on display in the galleries and talk about the concepts of realism, abstraction, media, technique, expression, historical context and more in an easy-going and enjoyable session.
