Serves as a chronological introduction to world Visual ARTD from prehistoric times to c. 1400 CE. This introduction focuses on analyzing works within their own historic, religious, political, and social contexts, as well as art’s relationship to cross-cultural contexts.

Structural and formal elements will also be considered, as will the evolution of media and its impact on expression and the dissemination of ideas. This course will foster critical thinking skills by developing the ability to perceive, research, analyze, interpret, question, and articulate an understanding of art history in written, graphic, and verbal forms. A collective emphasis will focus on student understanding and the encouragement of an informed dialogue with our diverse cultural and artistic heritages.
