The German Art School, The Bauhaus, that existed between the two World Wars, was a melting pot of innovation in modern art and architecture.This course will take a look at the history The Bauhaus, its founder, Walter Gropius and his contemporaries. We will explore the International Style of Architecture and how it ultimately relates to America and Cape Cod. We will talk about the beginning of the modern style of architecture and how students and teachers of the Bauhaus eventually brought these modern ideas to America and how those ideas filtered through the country and what impact they had on Cape Cod. 
Classes will include slide lectures, short films, hand-outs to take home, hands-on experiments in the International Style techniques and activities themed on the preliminary course ideas from the Bauhaus.  Participants will be encouraged to bring their imaginations and also be ready for discussion.
