ART 238 - Art Through the Ages -A

This course surveys some of the most significant works of art in sculpture, architecture, fiber arts, and painting. Regions covered include Asia, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, from prehistoric time periods through the present, using text readings, research, power point presentations, and individual works. The art and architecture will be used as examples of stylistic differences as well as documents of their time and place to reflect the history, politics, religion, and geographic location of the various cultures. Familiarity with these works helps students understand the motivation behind the creation of art throughout history and the role of art in each particular culture. This will further inform the way in which the function of art has changed over time.
