Art Making through the Ages: A Hands-on Approach to Art History

In this course, students deepen their creative abilities while exploring significant artistic achievements from pre-history through contemporary times. Throughout human existence, art making has been one of the most tangible expressions of our highest aspirations and deepest emotions. The arts are an essential aspect of all societies and cultures – people the world over have mirrored, decorated, critiqued, and even changed society through their creative works. Course explores major achievements throughout the ages including pre-history, Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Impressionism, Expressionism, Fauvism, Pop, and contemporary art. This unique approach provides an opportunity for students to enhance their own work through hands-on art exercises, while expanding their knowledge of art history.
