What you'll learn in this art history class:

The course will be on the evolution of the French Renaissance, focusing on the redesign of Fontainebleau by Francois I.

We will learn how the School of Fointainebleau was inspired by Italian artists brought on by Francois I and how the style bean to permeate all aspects of French arts, outside of solely interior design.

Artists who we will be discussed include Rosso Fiorentino and Primaticcio as well as other contemporary French goldsmiths and designers. We will also look at how court intrigue influenced later additions to the palace by Henri II and his mistress Diane de Poitiers.

Each week, we will focus on a different topic:

  • Class 1: Intro to the French Renaissance
  • Class 2: Focus on the 1st School of Fontainebleau
  • Class 3: Design and printmaking in the French Renaissance (and why it’s important!)
  • Class 4: Role of women in the arts and culture of the French Renaissance
  • Class 5: Interior Design and Ornament in the French Renaissance
  • Class 6: Artist Focus: Jean Clouet
  • Class 7: The Art of the Late French Renaissance


Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Why are classes 1 thru 7 listed ? ...and yet it says $15 is for 1 class ? If so, how does one get the series, .. is one offered ?? Please clarify.....by date, by class #, and class content.
Answer from Chelsea B.
Hi! Teacher here. There are each separate classes, and you don't necessarily need to follow each one. This is the only way coursehorse would allow me to do multiple classes. The courses are in order by date (ex. September 11 is intro to the French Ren, September 18 is the 1St School of Fontainebleau etc.

I really like this course. The teacher is scholarly, enthusiastic and very open to questions. The time flies by. The visuals are also excellent and helpful. I’m looking forward to the rest of the classes because I’m learning a lot.
