Bite Sized Art History
Wednesday, July 17, 2013 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
In this class we will explore the symbolism and rituals associated with food depicted in Western art. Each class will feature a discussion of paintings throughout history that depict the symbolism, customs and rituals associated with food and dining. Topics include symbolic meanings of specific foods, allegorical representations of consumption, and modern interpretations of food in consumer culture. Each discussion will be followed by hands-on preparation of delicious, creative recipes inspired by the art explored in class. Topics will include: “The Apple” (July 17), “Vanitas Delicacies” (July 24), and “Temptations” (July 31).
This class will be led by Nicole Derenne. Nicole Derenne teaches art history in the Department of Art and Design at the University of North Dakota. For the past ten years, Derenne has taught classes on Modern Art, Feminist Art, Non-Western Art and surveys of art history from the ancient world to the present. Derenne also enjoys preparing healthy, delicious and creative recipes for her family.
