This is an exploration of visual art forms and their cultural connections for the student with little experience in the visual arts. The course includes a brief study of art history and in depth studies of the elements, media, and methods used in creative process and thought. Visual and performing arts are part of the Humanities: academic disciplines that study the human condition and include the languages, literature, law, history and religion.
This course will teach students to develop a five-step system for understanding visual art in all forms based on description, analysis, meaning, context and judgment.
