Art Through the Ages

ID : 934   
« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Artists through the ages have time and again addressed similar themes in their art–life, death, beauty, power, war, spirituality, fantasy--although from very different perspectives of time and place. We will examine selected themes, in each case looking at the work of artists of different periods and cultures. Our aim will be to better understand their art as well as develop a context for understanding the art of our own day.  In doing so, we will examine how art pays homage to its traditional roots, how it incorporates widely varying media and techniques, and how art today reflects the multicultural, globalized, technologically-oriented society in which we now live. The only prerequisite for this adventure through the world of art is an open mind. We will look, learn, reflect, discuss. Occasional field trips to local museums may also be scheduled. Our goal will be to develop a greater understanding of the nature and purposes of art through the ages and thus enhance our enjoyment of the art of our own time.
