Introduction to Reynolda

Introduction to Reynolda is a multi-session course that is the cornerstone of the Reynolda discovery experience. Using an interdisciplinary approach and the Museum’s collections, students will research correlations between art, literature, and music of the era. Participants will find themselves intrigued, challenged, and supported as they explore four centuries of art in the company of other lifelong learners.
