ARH 1000 Art Appreciation

This introductory course is designed for the non-art major for the purpose of giving students the knowledge, skills and tools necessary for understanding and critically assessing works of art and their role in the everyday world. It provides an appreciation and foundation in visual literacy with an emphasis on the analysis of formal aspects - such as composition, form, space, medium and technique - and a vocabulary of critical analysis and interpretation of masterworks of art. Classes are visually intensive and include viewing art work in the Webber Center Gallery and the Appleton Museum of Art.
