Art Courses

Art HistoryArt Lecture

Art Appreciation is designed to appeal to students who are beginning to study visual art. Art Appreciation is also appropriate for non-majors. Through a consideration of abundant images, students will explore why and how art is created. Students will learn about individual artists and the arts of diverse cultures.

Art History: Prehistory to Gothic and Art History: Renaissance to Modern examine the history of art with an emphasis on how art impacted history and how history influenced the creation of art. Students will explore both the Western tradition and the arts of diverse cultures from around the world. Both classes are transferrable to most universities. For more information, contact Art History Professors, Matt Backer or James Campbell.

The 2-D design courses focus on basic qualities of visual elements, such as line, shape, color, and texture. 2-D design courses provide an environment where students of various interests (commercial and fine arts programs) develop the skills necessary to work in a collaborative design studio. Design I provides a foundational set of skills, while Design III focuses on color theory techniques.

Students have the opportunity to witness how designers employ these foundational skills in their work as animators, architects, graphic designers, and gallery artists. For more information contact Design Professor, Renee Justiss.
