Art Students & Theatre Course Enhancement Project

Fall Semester 2013

Theatre Professor Leah Roy and Art Professor Morna O’Neill collaborated on a project bringing Period and Style movement into Art 273: Eighteenth-Century European Art class during the Fall 2013 semester. Two sessions introduced students to a vocabulary for describing gesture, pose, and movement, then revisited these ideas in conjunction with the art of the French Revolution. Students interacted with period costumes and accessories—especially fans—as they considered the impact of bodily constriction on physical expression.
