ART-100 A World of Art

A World of Art is an art appreciation course that covers the sweep of Western art from its earliest sources to its most recent developments. The course covers a range of media that have defined visual art over time: painting and sculpture; architecture and decorative arts; photography and drawing; mixed media; and assemblage and installation art. This course demonstrates ways that the visual arts have echoed the human experience across the ages. A key theme is the way that art reflects both continuity with previous tradition and transformation as artists continually create something new. Course content is drawn from the Teaching Company's "Art Across the Ages" course by Professor Ori Z. Soltes.
