Susan Linn – Art History: Impressionism to Modernism

July 14 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Come join us at the Ontario Museum of History and Art (OMHA) for a morning of art history from Impressionism to Modernism, with an emphasis on painting, sculpture and architecture.

Susan Linn is a fulltime Elementary and High School teacher in Orange County. She works in a private school, which allows her the flexibility to teach Elementary, Jr. High and High School Art and history for the past 25 years. She works with a program known as Meet the Master’s. This program is comprised four age-appropriate artistic levels which introduces K-6th graders to seven famous, and different artists/artistic styles each year. I have had the privilege to instill a love for the arts in thousands of my students throughout the years and continue to do so. We have students whose works are entered into the Orange County Arts for All, which features over 1000 works yearly at South Coast Plaza/Crystal Court and some are then chosen to be judged and shown at the Festival of the Arts in Laguna Beach each year.

She currently spends most of her day in the high school, and work for the College Board teaching Advanced Placement (College Level) AP Art History, AP European History and AP World History for the last 23 years. I have also led a dozen student and adult custom tours (2 to 3 weeks in summer) to the East Coast and Europe, where I specialize in taking my groups to the various tourist destinations, and those off the beaten track. Understanding the purpose of architecture, painting and sculpture in the world makes history come alive. Both my husband Tim and I have also traveled extensively and continue to do so.

She stumbled into the Arts quite unexpectedly, after starting out in the Sciences. I believe that art has a universal language, purpose and can unite people from all walks of life. My goal is to be an instrument/vehicle to help my students develop an understanding, along with a global appreciation for the various artists and artistic styles in the world in which we live.
