ART 230 - Art History Ancient to Medieval

3 Credits


In this class students gain a greater understanding of Western Art History from the Neolithic to the beginning of the Renaissance. Using the text and online resources "Gardner's Art Through the Ages" students study works from the Stone Age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Early Christian era, the Medieval era, and the Gothic era, among others. Students will also study a brief survey of non-western art before 1200 CE. Art is as much about the cultural shifts surrounding the making as it is about the pieces themselves. In this class you will learn about great artists, art works, and the social forces that brought them about.
