Description

Class Experience

In this course, students will learn about Asian art history and be able to identify and comprehend the art from this region of the world. Skills developed include:
--critical thinking
--descriptive writing and discussions
--identity politics and discussions of diversity
--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. Work will be posted in the provided space in the classroom.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners are assessed on their weekly class participation and their homework assignments. Grades provided upon request. 
No live meetings, 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.
