Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Students will learn the following things in this course:
--How to talk about and describe architecture, both verbally and in written form
--The characteristics of art and architecture of different movements and cultures
--How to think critically about art and images that are presented to you
--How art fits into a larger historical context and how world events shape art production
I have been teaching art history for seven years now and have a Master's Degree in Art History. I started my career teaching at the university level and in museums and have been teaching art history on Outschool since 2018. I developed this introductory series 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 Offered
Each week, students will respond to questions that correlate with the week's topics in 1-2 paragraphs. There are two larger writing assignments--one visual analysis where the student describes a structure in detail and one short research paper where the students select a structure or architect and explore the history and impact of the structure or person on architectural forms.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Learner progress is assessed through in-class discussions, online discussions, and written assignments. Letter grades and grade reports are available upon request.
Grades Offered
Buildings discussed may be religious in nature or have defensive purposes.
Guided virtual tours will be provided in-class from various, instructor-vetted resources and 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 from these regions, resources from the monument's official source materials, and museum information. Whenever possible, information will be pulled from institutions grounded within the monument's region, to inform the discussion from a decolonized perspective. When available, primary sources from the time period and area are used to include these voices prominently, particularly with African, Asian, and Indigenous American monuments.
