Course Description

An introduction to the "Art" of appreciating art, this course is designed to help students feel more confident viewing and discussing the visual arts. In addition to traditional learning tools, students will be challenged by hands-on creative projects, two museum visits, DVD viewings, oral presentations, Western New England University art gallery visits, and ongoing online discussion questions. Exploring the various ways art has been created from pre-history up to the present will assist students in engaging their minds and imaginations to better understand the multiplicity of art movements that comprise the history of Western visual arts.
