I have been teaching art history for seven years now. I started my career teaching at the university level and in museums and have been teaching art history on Outschool since 2018.

Each week, students will respond to questions that correlate with the week's topics in 1-2 paragraphs.
Learner progress is assessed through in-class discussions, online discussions, and written assignments. Grades are available upon request.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Artworks may include images of nudity, violence, or religious imagery. Nazi Germany will be discussed in Week 3.
Students will be provided with outside resources after every class to elaborate on our lessons, available online. Sources used include university lectures, art historical textbooks, including Gardner's Art Through the Ages and Stokstad's Art History, cultural center websites, and museum information. When available, primary sources from the time period and area are used to include these voices prominently.
