Introduction to Art History
[Michelangelo- Creation of Adam]
This introductory art history course is designed to provide beginner students with a comprehensive survey of the evolution of art from antiquity to contemporary times. We decipher the ‘periods’, ‘movements’ and ‘-isms’ by which the history of Western art is conventionally structured. Through an engaging and informative journey, students will develop a fundamental understanding of art history, including key artistic styles, iconic masterpieces, and the societal and cultural contexts that shaped them.
