In a society that tends toward mass production and consumption, there are still those whose primary concern is content and authenticity. Such is the idea of "Boutique Schools". The Fine School provides a creative, multidisciplinary environment for students via its curriculum that includes the western arts, the history of art, and art education. This intensive program consists of 24 classes and it has been designed for people who are serious about developing their interest in works of art and the discipline of Western Art History. The program is open to everyone, including students from the age of 16. The Fine School takes a close and critical look at the development of the various 'periods', 'movements' and 'isms' by which the history of Western Art is conventionally structured, as well as at the 'alleged' characteristics of the art produced. The Fine School delves deeply into single movements using key objects as a means to understanding the progression of styles and the various thought processes in Western Art. This program includes paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, techniques and artistic strategies used to create them affect not only their appearance but also their meanings. Beginning with the rise of the Western Art tradition in ancient Egypt and ending with Conceptual Art in the 60s, the program will trace the evolution of major artistic periods and styles through a close consideration of major artwork and monuments. Students will learn to develop a critical eye, through videos, slideshows and lectures. The program also includes the development of art in Italy from the time of the Etruscans to Constantine the Great, focusing on the monuments of imperial Rome and on the architecture, sculpture, paintings and mosaics in Italy and throughout the empire, up until the major art movements of late nineteenth-century France.
