Posted: Tuesday, 22 April 2008

DOTHAN—The Troy University Department of Art and Design will offer three classes for academic credit at the Wiregrass Museum of Art beginning May 28, according to Jerry Johnson, chair of the department.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for Dothan-area residents who are interested in art to take some courses in a convenient location,” Johnson said. “It’s also a good opportunity for current Troy University students who live in the Dothan area and need to pick up some hours over the summer.”

The courses are:

  • Introductory Drawing ART2201 taught by Greg Skaggs May 28-May 2 from 10 a.m. until 11:50 a.m. Monday through Thursday. This course is open to all students and can be taken for University credit or audited. It will be in the education studio at Wiregrass Museum in Dothan.
  • Survey of Art History I ART1150 taught by Dr. Michael Holmes May 28-July 23 10 a.m. until 11:50 a.m. Monday through Thursday. This course is open to all and can be substituted for ART1133 Visual Arts (art appreciation) which is a requirement of most all majors.
  • Special Topics: History of Design ART3375 taught by Dr. Michael Holmes May 28-July 23 1 p.m. until 2:50 p.m. Monday through Thursday. This is a general survey of the evolution of human design from furniture, to graphics, to architecture.
  • “We appreciate the opportunity to work with our partners at the Wiregrass Museum of Art to make these classes available,” Johnson said. “We would like to make classes at the Museum an annual summer event.”
