History of Art (Semester 1 and/or Semester 2)

History of Art compares and contrasts different styles and movements of art through the centuries, from classical antiquities to modern art and the contemporary art scene. Rather than follow a traditional time line, the course jumps from century to century, making unusual and unexpected connections, and noticing that  wildly different approaches to great art nevertheless share important characteristics and influences.  Through discussion, research, and critical analysis, students reach a better understanding of how art has influenced and reflected our culture. The class incorporates numerous museum and gallery visits, as well as some “hands-on” art-making, to help students better understand different approaches and techniques.
Prerequisite: 2 semesters of visual or performing arts.
