6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
The Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University is presenting a
teacher workshop on Francisco Goya's LOS CAPRICHOS print series!
Teaching packets with slides and postcards will be provided. The packet
can includes innovative art activities and questions for elementary and
secondary levels. The overall goal of the packet is to create awareness
of the different character traits Goya satirizes in LOS CAPRICHOS.
Vanity, greed, pride, and deception are some of the moral weaknesses
Goya criticizes and this packet explores. My hope is that through
examination, analysis, and judgement of Goya's extraordinary print
series, students can learn the difference between respectable and
contemptible character. The workshop will be presented by D'Ann White,
Marcus Fellow, North Texas Institute for Educators in the Visual Arts
and Amy Lewis, Highland Park ISD art teacher. $25.00 fee per teacher,
please call the Meadows Museum to register (214) 768-1688.
In 1799, Francisco Goya made public his first major print series, LOS
CAPRICHOS. Renowned today for their ambiguity and deeply satirical tone,
these eighty etchings with aquatint remain among the most complex and
intriguing works in the ouevre of this remarkable artist. The first
edition series is from the permanent collection of the museum.The
Meadows Museum is the finest collection of Spanish art outside Spain.
