ART 1301 - Introduction to Art (Non major)
Credits: 3 hrs
This lecture- and discussion-based course is designed to develop the critical thinking skills needed to appreciate and enjoy art. Students will learn to identify and understand the development of major techniques and wide-ranging themes in art and to analyze and interpret art in terms of its style, context, purpose, and history. Visits to galleries and museums will further develop these skills through the first-hand study of works of art.
This course is offered for non-majors. Students who are planning to major or minor in art are advised to take ART 2301 and ART 2302 instead of ART 1301.
