VIS 1001C - World Art I
This course will cover the Prehistoric, Ancient Near East, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Medieval eras as well as Asian traditions in art up until the fourteenth century. These artistic periods will be investigated within their socio- cultural-historical context. Students will also learn how to approach an artwork as an aesthetic object and to feel comfortable in analyzing its formal properties. By studying the art of these early cultures, students will understand the impact of these artistic traditions on contemporary life via the mass media, as well as product and architectural design. A comparative survey of painting, sculpture, and architecture will take place through slide lectures and discussion. Field trips to museums are an integral aspect of the course.
