Meet April Sivad - PureART's Founder & Art Director - at The Bakery Atlanta, this Summer, June 3 - August 2 825 Warner Street SW, Atlanta, GA 30310.
Art Appreciation is the knowledge and understanding of the universal and timeless qualities that identify all great art. The more the world appreciates and understands art of different eras, movements, styles and techniques, the better we are able to evaluate and improve our own unique masterpieces. PureART cultivate creativity, social development, and leadership in our students while inspiring them to make positive differences in their community through "the arts".
PureART students find inspiration by diving into other cultures outside of their own and getting to travel and learn from various art forms. During our regular program, we tour the city of Atlanta to visit movie & production studios, museums & art galleries, theaters & stage plays, fashion shows, magazine corporations, visit high-end chef kitchens, and any other art form discussed. By the end of the summer, our students will have participated in various workshops and classes that could put them in front of some of the most successful directors, producers, and top colleges in the city.
