Painting, sculpture, and architecture, among other forms of art, will be introduced, mostly confined to the western tradition, from ancient times to the present. The historical context, including social, political, economic, and technical factors, will be considered in relation to the making and critiquing of cultural traditions. Students will learn the foundations of visual language; the course also prepares them for intermediate-level art history courses. Visits to local museums are encouraged.
