Course Description:
Welcome to the first semester of Art History! In this course, the student will take up the question What is art? as he explores the artistic endeavors of early civilizations. Early in the course, the student will explore some of the basic elements and principles of art and its role in human history and the development of culture. He will also think about the ways that a work of art interacts with human sensory perception to produce a particular effect, as well as various other factors that affect the interpretation of a work of art. Once the student has obtained a basic foundation in art theory, he will begin to examine the history of art from its earliest manifestations in prehistoric times up through the ancient Egyptian civilization.
