ARTH 110: Why Art Matters

(1 Unit)
Prerequisites:  None.
This course explores the fundamentals of art and the place of art in the historical moment and cultures from which it arises.  As part of the course we will ask why and how art has meaning in human life.  Students will learn a variety of basic tools of analysis through interaction with art, looking and reading assignments, discussion, and written exercises.  The ultimate goal of this course is to stimulate and empower students to think critically and express themselves well about the art they encounter.
