Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the following things in this course:
--How to talk about and describe art, both verbally and in written form
--The characteristics of art 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 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! 
Learners will be given the choice of two projects to complete before each week, which will take less than an hour to complete. these projects are optional for students who wish to complete them. 
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.
Some artwork may contain nudity or scenes of violence.
