An appreciative note

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for being able to enjoy the lessons of a great art-teacher. I have enjoyed his knowledge and his encouragement in both Contemporary art and Art-Appreciation. The amount of knowledge that I have gathered and the depth of art that he pushed his students to grasp has truly enlarged my horizon. In only a few months my appreciation for art has more than doubled as I have more understanding for art and realize its impact in our culture and our history. Thank you Mr. Parente

Andre Martins de Barros

My art-class has brought me closer to an artist that had his height in the 1500s, whose name is Acrimboldo Guiseppe, who created a style which used objects to create peoples portraits. And this is why I want to introduce Andre Martins de Barros and show how close the past and the contemporary styles build on each other.
