Class Experience

--critical thinking
--descriptive writing and discussions

--engagement with various media formats
I have been teaching introductory art history courses at the undergraduate level for three years now and one of the biggest complaints I get from my own students, who are primarily college freshman and sophomores, is that they were not exposed to the arts sooner. I wanted to develop this introductory course for middle and high schoolers so that they could have a foundation for talking about the arts earlier than at the college level and be exposed to history in a new way! 
Homework will include minor art or research assignments each week, totaling 1-2 hours outside of classtime
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners are assessed on their in-class participation and their homework assignments. Grades provided upon request. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students may encounter artworks in this course that depict nudity or violence. Some artworks will be religious in nature. Specifically Buddhist, Islamic, Hindu, and Jewish artworks will be displayed.
