Fine Arts | Art Appreciation
H100 | 11439 | Janet Rauscher
This course will introduce the non-specialist to the world
of art. Its emphasis will be on how to see and understand works of
art within the context of the periods which produced them.
It will ask questions about the role art has played in
given cultures; who its sponsors were; by what standards it was
judged; what the role and status of the artist was, and the
techniques available in a given period. Students will learn a new
visual vocabulary which will enable them to see and enjoy a variety
of different styles, and to become familiar with the terminology
used in speaking about art.
