AR 1230 - Introduction to Art and Art History


This course will explore the ways in which social, cultural, religious, political and aesthetic values have been expressed in art and architecture throughout history. A thematic approach will encourage students to develop a deeper understanding of connections, issues, and influences across time periods and cultures. While focusing primarily on Western society since antiquity, other cultures and civilizations will be covered as well. Projects and papers assigned will allow students to demonstrate their understanding of these connections, as well as to clearly articulate the characteristics, both culturally and aesthetically, of a particular historical time and place. Students will become familiar with the vocabulary and media of art and architecture as well as develop their visual analysis and critical thinking skills. (4 credits)
