This course introduces students to the world of visual arts, including how to look at, interpret, analyze, and understand a variety of art forms, such as drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, architecture, design, and the camera arts. We study art from around the world and from the beginning of human civilization as a way of understanding the social, political, and cultural attitudes that influence how art is produced, viewed, and critiqued.
