In this trimester course, students will explore Western art history from the most ancient beginnings to the contemporary world of art. The college-level text Living With Art by Mark Getlein will inform the course. Students will watch films of contemporary artists from the PBS series Art 21, Simon Schama’s Power of Art series, and other films. Additionally, students will visit the Speed Museum and 21C Hotel in order to see art off the page and computer. Students will develop a clearer sense of how and why art is made.  This course is highly recommended for all Studio Art students.

Grades 11–12
