Contemporary Art Class with Veronica Shimanovskaya

Contemporary Art or ”Bring Your Own Project” Class

The purpose of this class to take a mystery out of contemporary art, and make it familiar and easy to understand, while doing your own experimental projects.


Contemporary art is spread through many genres: painting, sculpture, object making, mixed media, installation, video, performance, and all the rest.


The main thing that allows a work of art to be qualified as contemporary is a conceptual or critical thinking, and of course a freedom of expression.


Discussing the topics that may become a subject of artistic exploration, developing student’s own creative ideas that may derive from an object or a concept, and making them come to live in the medium of their own choice, can be as enjoyable as it can be challenging.


Experimenting, trying things out, and eventually producing work that will end up in the Final Course Exhibition, whether it is a painting, an object, or a performance should be fun and fulfilling experience for the students.


Schedule: May 28, June 4, June 11, June 18 (Sundays), 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.


Fees for 4 classes: $100 for FAA members, $120 for non-members.

All classes are held at Fremont Art Association, 37697 Niles Blvd, Fremont.

Veronica Shimanovskaya is a St. Petersburg born Russian-American artist, currently residing in California. She studied art, architecture and theater and earned her MA and Doctorate degrees from the University of East London, University of Architecture and Civil Engineering and Harvard University respectively.


As an artist, whose life evolved in and between three different cultures, she is intrigued by the differences in perception and their relationship to pure subjectivity. Shimanovskaya explores how subjective experiences confer knowledge through notoriously complex non-verbal systems of communication. She works in painting, object making, moving image, and immersive installation, and exhibits internationally.
