Welcome to Introduction to Art History!
This year students will take an inquiry-based approach to exploring, researching, and analyzing works of art across time and cultures. They will investigate a wide range of media and techniques, from both an historical and contemporary perspective, as they engage in the art-making processes of creating two- and three-dimensional works, which may include drawing, painting, printmaking, and/or collage. Student artists reflect on their own artwork and that of others through critical analysis to achieve artistic goals related to craftsmanship, technique, and application of 21st-century skills. Opportunities will be provided for creative decision-making in the context of the structural elements of art and the organizational principles of design. This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials. Through the arts critical thinking skills help students become creative and innovative learners. Study skills and organization will be stressed.
