It is always amazing how the same thing can be interpreted by artists from different time periods, cultures, styles and personal perspectives.  Each week we will view a particular subject through a lens offering a kaleidoscope of images from fine art collections. The following subjects will be our focus:


This is a sequel to “Seeing the World Through Art” which allowed us to view major art museums and selected works around the world in 6 meetings as travelers using the vehicle of Zoom.  We will be using Zoom again to move quickly through time and space.  Newcomers are welcome!  Rather than being in conventional lecture format, artist and EAC instructor Mary Ann McCarthy McArdle will invite you to participate in lively discussion and observation of each work of art.

Mary Ann McCarthy McArdle is an Essex Art Center instructor who also serves as an Access Program Guide at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where she creates and conducts multi-sensory tours for a variety of organizations.

Class format: We will meet together using Zoom video conferencing. An invite will be emailed to you before the first class session, and you'll need internet access on your computer, tablet, or phone to participate.
