Major figures from Europe, Asia, South America, and the United States who work on both sides of the art/design divide will also be considered.

Lecturer: Andrew J. Douglas, Director of Education, Bryn Mawr Film Institute

Film noir is a cycle of pictures that emerged, in the 1940s, from the confluence of Hollywood’s detective and gangster movies, hard-boiled fiction, and the aesthetics of German Expressionism. Typified by stark lighting, bleak urban settings, and corrupt, broken characters, noir has a fascination with doom, male anxiety, and transgression, the threats of which the spell-casting femme fatale embodies. Join us as we explore exemplary works from the genre, including The Maltese Falcon and Double Indemnity, among others.

This course is offered in collaboration with Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

Lecturer: Andrew J. Douglas, Director of Education, Bryn Mawr Film Institute
Long before Garbo talked, Jolson sang, or Norma Desmond readied for her close-up, there were silent movies. Some were scandalous, some were glorious, and many have been lost to time. But what remains sheds considerable light on the origins of this form that emerged from the confluence of science, art, commerce, and the Industrial Revolution.

This course introduces students to silent film, a blanket term covering the period in cinema from the Lumières’ Paris premiere in 1895 to the establishment of synchronized sound feature films as the Hollywood standard in 1929. We examine some of the medium’s key precursors, pioneers, and practitioners in technology and technique, and discuss some of the classic films of the age, including novelties, short films, documentaries, and features.

Don’t miss your chance to experience the era that saw the movies go from being dismissed as a fad and petty amusement to being hailed as a major art form and a mighty industry.

This course is in collaboration with Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

Part 1: Saturday, September 16, 2017, Philadelphia Museum of Art
Part 2: Saturday, September 23, 2017, Culinary Literacy Center, Parkway Central Library, Free Library of Philadelphia​
$65 ($52 members)

Designed for teachers of grades pre-K-2, this two-part workshop introduces creative ways that art, food, and literacy can come together to create engaging experiences for young learners.

Part 1 of 2: Inspired by picture books and the Museum's collection, the first session focuses on age-appropriate, object-based approaches to looking at and teaching art through stories and storytelling. Educators will participate in gallery activities and discussions, as well as learn strategies for developing meaningful studio art projects for the classroom.

Part 2 of 2 (hosted by Free Library of Philadelphia's Culinary Literacy Center): Meet with children's librarians and early literacy experts, and learn how to use picture books to explore science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Spend the afternoon fully immersed in hands-on cooking strategies in the Culinary Literacy Center's commercial-grade kitchen classroom. Learn how cooking supports early literacy and experiment with ways to incorporate cooking in your classroom. Walk away inspired with age-appropriate lessons, books, and ideas that bring together food, art, and literacy.
