"Anglo-Saxon" Melting Pot
Instructor's Kingdom: Atlantia, Time Zone: EST
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
(REVISED!) Unlike the story too often told, the art of Early Medieval England was truly that of a multiculture formed by migration, assimilation, and synthesis.
In this class we'll begin to explore regional differences across the kingdoms; trace its evolution as local styles were influenced by and combined with art from Europe (and beyond!); and delve into a few of the myriad ways that religion, politics, and culture impacted their art.
By the end, I hope you'll have a finer understanding of Early English art, as well as the kaleidoscope the period represents, so that when the time comes to create an early-period English scroll, you'll be ready. [This class will not be recorded.]
