      • Introduction: “Hello, thank you for participating in this course. The course will be led by two instructors, Ms. Adrienne D’Angelo and Ms. Tiffany Wang. Tiffany is going to begin by giving an introduction about the set up of the course and also give a brief tutorial on how to navigate the various software and web tools we be using. I am Adrienne D’Angelo. For many years, I worked in education at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Now, I am a doctoral student in art education. The primary focus of the course is to think about how we look at works of art . Where do we draw meaning? What is an experience?
      • After Tiffany’s introduction, the course will be set over four weeks. Each week we will view a different work of art and have a conversation about the work for 20-30 minutes. After each online course, you are encouraged to think more about the work and the discussion. If you are interested, you may do research on your own. The conversations will be fun and engaging. Your participation, ideas and thoughts are the most important part of the course. We want to hear what you think! “
