ART 230 - Art History I

3 Credits


In this class, students develop their understanding of Western Art History from the Neolithic to the Baroque. Using the text and online resources “Gardner’s Art Through the Ages,” students study works from the Stone Age, the Ancient, the Early Christian, the Medieval, the Gothic, and the Renaissance up through the Baroque period. Students also study a brief survey of non-western art before 1200 CE. Great artists and specific works of art, as well as the social forces and cultural shifts that brought them about, are integral to the course.
