Through study in disciplines such as literature, philosophy, and the visual and performing arts, students will engage in critical analysis, form aesthetic judgments, and develop an appreciation of the arts and humanities as fundamental to the health and survival of any society. Students should have experiences in both the arts and humanities. ART 1309 Course Description : Art Appreciation is a study of the visual arts for non-art majors emphasizing an investigation of the nature of art – past and present, in western and non-western cultures. Students will learn to recognize art not only as the expression of individual artists but also as the reflection of wider cultural identities (religious, political and social). To achieve this goal, students will learn to identify the basic formal elements underlying all art forms, the processes by which visual art is created, and the many ways of “seeing” and “interpreting” works of art. Visits to local art exhibitions and museums outside of class time are required. Required Textbook : Henry M. Sayre, A World of Art , 5 th edition (Prentice Hall, 2007).
