PCA 202-ART - Introduction to Art History


Min Units: 3
Max Units: 3
Through a series of case studies, this course examines the importance of art as a cultural expression across time, and from a global perspective. The course introduces art through formal elements, medium, historical context, and themes. Students will analyze the style, subject, and patronage of works of art, and will explore art’s relationship to religion, ideology, society, economy, gender and racial identities, and the interaction of cultures. Case studies will include painting, sculpture, architecture, design, printmaking, and photography, among others. The course also incorporates mandatory assignments and activities related to a local museum, for example, the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields. (U) Fall, Spring
