What you'll learn in this art history class:

Through museum and gallery visits, online images, readings, and discussion, students will learn several ways of approaching and viewing visual arts. These will include the language of formal analysis, iconography, and semiotics, as well as an exploration of neuroaesthetics. Discussion includes the traditional framework of an historical narrative of art and a search for commonalities across cultures and eras.

Students develop a language for better understanding and appreciating art from a wide variety of periods, styles, and movements. They benefit from a slow art approach to looking deeply and with intent at original works of art in the OUMA collection. They leave with a ‘toolkit’ of techniques they can use for any museum or gallery visit which will greatly enhance their enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts.
