PROPOSAL FOR THE INSTITUTION OF ARTS I Critical Perspectives in the Arts I. Identifying and Descriptive Information The proposed GE course was developed during the UP GE System Mini- conference on “Living Arts and Culture” in October 2014 in response to changes in the K-12 curriculum wherein a critical perspective in the study of art is deemed necessary in university education. The conference participants agreed that this is a “required” course and may be taken in any year level. As the course seeks to deepen and enhance the knowledge gained from the high school curriculum through aninterdisciplinary approach in studying art, discursive teaching modules should be employed in developing aesthetic awareness, artistic literacy and reflexive thinking. The course outline is broad enough to accommodate the different art forms – literary arts, media arts, performative arts, and visual arts – so that the faculty will have a variety of choices in developing each module, activities and reading materials. As the course can be handled by different departments and colleges, the specific content for the course outline may vary across the UP units. A. Course Catalogue Description 1. Course number: ARTS I 2. Course Title: Critical Perspectives in the Arts 3. Course Description: A critical study of the experience, language, and context of art. 4. Prerequisite: None 5. Semester Offered: Every semester 6. Course Credit: 3.0 7. Number of Hours: 3 hours / week 8. Course Goals: For the student to: hone aesthetic awareness, artistic literacy and reflexive thinking; develop an understanding of critical perspectives in valuing art in various contexts; and foreground the particularities of the Philippine condition in the study of art. B. Rationale The GE course is envisioned to deepen the discursive nature of art, broadly conceived, by employing interdisciplinary perspectives. Since the course is a discourse in art, the UP student will be equipped to understand art in various contexts and the issues that surround its production, circulation and reception in society. This is a necessary skill and knowledge in the context of an “information society” in which texts, images and art practices are shared freely and in multitudes every day and everywhere. A UP student is envisioned to be able to discern and give value-judgment on art on the basis of foregrounded research and knowledge of critical perspectives. Such knowledge is therefore necessary in an educational system that gives importance to the goal of life-long learning.

    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.
