School of art


An art term, it describes artists sharing creative ideas and methods that committed them "to a single theme, style, technique, and/or art philosophy".(60) An example is the 19th-century Hudson River School, about 60 artists whose 'school' was not an art school with classrooms, but was shared ideas and painting experiences with easels and sketch pads in the Hudson Valley.
