In my new journey watercolor stay-in-home travel with a new course Roman Architecture at online Open Yale course. There so many interesting facts I am learning from the Professor of History of Art and Classics Diana E.E. Kleiner Dunham. https://www.coursera.org/learn/roman-architecture
Painting journey of my 3 passions – Roman Architecture and Art with references and learning from Yale University Roman Architecture, Professor Kleiner about art, architecture
The course Roman Architecture is my favourite one because I love to travel and would like to discover the power of architecture to shape culture and society with my additional research from the lectures. The nine- week course explores the great cities and their buildings, engineering marvels of Rome and its empire in their ancient and contemporary contexts. Rome, cities of Pompeii, Sicily, France, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia and the rest of Roman Empire. Experience the full brush of Rome’s beginning as an Iron Age village and how it became a world-class city and a gigantic empire surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.
The Romans had a vast impact on architecture worldwide. The Roman Architecture course will help me to design my own Roman City Art Project. I am going to learn some architecture skills and enhance my life.
Every temple has its story and legend, I love all lectures with interesting facts of the professor Diana E.E. Kleiner. One of the good things about learning is the professor’s enthusiasm and her own photos. In addition, I will use my husband’s photos and my own sketches from our vacation in Italy.
The course starts from 8 B.C. architecture and moves from one revolutionary experiment to the next one; and my paintings will follow the consecutive process of the development of Roman architecture that was born out of ancient Greek and Etruscan styles I hope that soon I will travel to Rome with all my new knowledge from the Roman Architecture course 🙂
I will pick a photo reference from a lecture for each painting. I am going to share my quick comparison for four picks of art watercolor albums and paints.
