2nd Annual Art Symposium

Influence of
the Italian Renaissance
on Contemporary
Western Culture

This year Artist and Director Anna Neis personally selected three students from various schools in New Jersey – Kelly Jiang, 14, Taisia Ivanova, 19, and Caitlin Petty, 20 – who showed both artistic ability and a desire to increase their knowledge of art history. The central theme of the symposium focuses on how the Italian Renaissance has influenced contemporary culture of the Western world, and through both sketching and journaling the students will be analyzing this topic in individual ways.
