Fine Arts | Art Appreciation
H100 | 4400 | Schilb
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.
