ART 110 is a lecture course that provides the student with an introduction to the study of visual art: its vocabulary, its 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 in interpreting 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 any student interested in art and culture and to those seeking to fulfill general education requirements in Fine Arts and Humanities.
