Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS), a leading non-profit organization connecting individuals from underserved populations with transformative career opportunities, has added another free online Visual Arts Exploration series aimed at expanding your horizons in the arts.
One of our most popular presenters, Helen Lee, returns with a new Art Series that examines many aspects of Visual Art. From paintings, costumes, photos, sculptures and more, Helen's insights into the art world and the connections to history and current events will bring new appreciation and understanding of the art that surrounds us.
This series will cover a variety of themes to include:
- Faith Ringgold: A comprehensive review of the exhibit “Faith Ringgold: American People,” which spans over 50 years of her art and focuses on race, gender and her quest for inclusion.
- Memorial Day: Drawing from photojournalism and other media, Helen will look at the world with a focus on Memorial, Charity, Honor/Gratitude, Sacrifice. Some of the works of art will include, Maya Lin's Veterans Memorial, St. Gauden's sculpture of Allegory of Charity, Jacob Lawrence's War Series, British Female Painters from WWII, etc.
- Dance: This will include dance representation in works of art (as well as costume, set design, etc. of all different types of dance forms) from various cultures.
- Father’s Day: This session will look at the changing roles of fathers and definitions of the family.
Developed and led by art history expert, Helen Lee.
