Beginning in the Renaissance, artistic training required students to observe and imitate both historical and contemporary works of art. This practice often occurred within the studios of their teachers, who amassed examples of great artworks from their peers and predecessors in order to instruct students in a wide variety of artistic methods. Through the generosity of Assistant Professor of Art Matthew Sepielli, Professor of Art Jaime Treadwell, and Professor of Graphic Design and Photography David Yox, Delaware County Community College recreates this practice in the twenty-first century. “Collection as Classroom” features paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs from the private collections of Professors Sepielli, Treadwell, and Yox. Carefully selected to demonstrate an array of techniques, stylistic strategies, and significant contemporary movements, this exhibition invites students to engage with these artworks to improve their own practice, while Art History students will research and produce labels for the exhibition.
