This lecture course is an introduction to the study of visual art: its vocabulary and forms, the many roles it plays in society, and the variety of processes artists master in its making. Students gain insight into current approaches used to interpret and derive meaning from art, and explore questions about the ways in which value is assigned to the art object. Using examples from cultures around the world and across time, this course offers a broad overview to students interested in art and culture, and to those seeking to fulfill general education requirements in Arts.
