ART-1010 - History of Western Art I (A) (3)


Students survey the development of painting, sculpture, and architecture in western cultures from the Paleolithic period of prehistory to late Fourteenth Century Italy. The focus of the study will be an historical chronology looking specifically at the formation and progression of social, cultural, and historical events that shaped the development of human aesthetic and sense of taste in the arts. The class observes how artistic styles over time and, through a cross-cultural analysis, compare the stylistic characteristics of each. Material in the classroom is presented through slides, videos, and lectures.  This course satisfies the General Education Arts requirement.
