Course Description

Style — the distinctive way in which something is made or how it appears — is a central characteristic of art and culture. Museums like the CMA catalog how specific styles emerge in different parts of the world during certain time periods due to changing tastes and new inspiration. Style is also a way of describing personal or cultural tastes, from codes of dress and home décor to the objects one might collect.


Sessions are dedicated to the museum’s fashion collection and reflections on personal and cultural style. Discussion topics include garments and textiles, gilded artworks in 17th-century France and connections to special exhibitions at the museum, including The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England and Egyptomania.
