Art-History CC
ARTH 1 Introduction to Art 3.00 Units
Why does art matter? Art matters because human beings make- have always made and always will make-images to communicate the great breadth of human experience. And why does the history of art matter? Because without it, the meaning of our forebears' images-their messages, teachings, gifts- will be lost to us. In this introduction to art, our class will travel through time and across the globe to learn how we humans use painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, and other forms to respond to our circumstances, to solve our problems, to demonstrate our values, and to make beauty from the materials we find around us. (Formerly ART 1; may not receive credit if ART 1 has been completed.)
