It will focus on selected key works of architecture, sculpture, painting, and other art forms from Neolithic to the present. These works will be viewed in their historical and cultural contexts, and their aesthetic, stylistic and technical aspects will be examined. No previous knowledge of Chinese art, culture, or language is required. The course is intensive in content since it covers more than 7000 years of civilization.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
