The Western Art of Frederic Remington is a course about the Old American West. The Old American West is a theater, a theater in which beautiful and imposing landscapes host the drama of Territorial Imperative. Europeans begin at first to trickle and then to pour into these vast territories already occupied by Native Americans. In this course we study and enjoy The Old West, The Horse, The Cowboy and the Tools of the Trade, The Indian and the Indian Attire, The Military Cavalry, Historical Paintings, Sculptures, Nocturnes. These are the themes of the work of this great American Master Frederic Remington. As in all my courses I seek to get us involved and as close to the subject as possible. I teach lecture courses and studios as I wish they would have been taught to me. Much of the graphic material in my lectures is taken or generated first hand directly by me on site. I teach to learn. I teach subjects as I wish they were taught to me. The Mission Statement. Education is a tool for the improvement of successive generations. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. ConfuciusThis course is designed under the premise that humans should be taught in a way that is modeled after the educational patterns of evolution. The design, development and application of educational systems based on the educational principles of evolution generates a philosophy and methodology of education in synchrony with the evolutionary education system that is firmly and deeply rooted in each of us. Education for evolution is an educational system designed to help propel humans forward in the natural course of evolution. The purpose of education for evolution is to enhance and strengthen the natural evolutionary process of humans through the mechanism of education. The means to achieve this objective is the design of a curricula based on the same educational techniques and strategies used by natural evolution, enhanced and guided by the application of conscious educational decisions.
