Students also learn to formally analyze works of art, and connect artworks through major themes such as sacred spaces, power/authority, religion, propaganda, identity, and narration. Contextual and visual analyses are an integral part of the course.Our current time period has a dramatically enhanced visual culture. I hope students will gain respect for and appreciation of imagery from a variety of cultures and time periods, and will connect the visual arts with other disciplines and their own daily lives. Art history is not a dry list of dates and facts. Students will realize how humanity is all connected by an innate desire to create imagery to commemorate, record, question or convey our emotions and ideas. In the best situations, the arts (including dance, music, etc.) speak truths that surpass the ability of words to express them. This course is also intended to prepare students for the AP Art History Examination. Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)Visual Literacy: Students will apply art historical methods to their visual environments to describe how images encode social ideologies, in both essays and oral presentations.Historical Research: Students will research specific cultures, artists, and artworks to present to class, both informally and formally.Canon of Images: Students will identify a canon of important images from art history, and be able to understand the basic problems and flux of that canon. They will describe the strengths and problems with labels. Transculturalism: Students will discuss and appreciate works of art from other cultures, but also describe them on the aesthetic criteria of those cultures. Furthermore, the student will understand how cultures influence and interact with one another. Social Context Methodology: Students will learn how art history, a discipline emphasizing social context art, is a field of study which makes connections between many other disciplines. Serendipity: Students will be encouraged to be a traveler who seeks the intellectual and emotional joys of aesthetic experiences, by exploring art in person through field trips, videos, and readings. Art Matters: Students will explain how art mediates a vast range of experiences including faith, our place in history, people who are different from us, civic life, and our emotional, psychological, and intellectual understanding of self. Breakdown of course contentWhile the course is primarily focused on Western art and architecture, students explore non-Western art from Asia, the Americas, Africa, Oceania, and the Islamic world. The emphasis is on art history as a web, rather than a linear timeline, with influences woven throughout different places and cultures. However, the time frame addresses the ancient world through the present day, from ancient Babylon to this year’s exhibits at Art Basel Miami. Prehistoric art is not covered in detail.Paintings/drawings make up about 45% of the canon, architecture 25%, sculpture 25%, and other media 5%.-6413532893000AP Exam BreakdownAttendanceRegular class attendance is important due to the pace of material covered.
