ARTS 1030 - Art Appreciation 3 Credits; 3 Lecture Hours This course is designed to introduce students to the magnificent works of art created in the western world during the last thirty thousand years. They will learn to analyze a work of art in terms of the appropriate formal elements and to understand the religious, political, social and aesthetic influences that helped to shape it and to give it meaning. This will allow them to recognize the stylistic differences which mark the art of a specific time and place. As students acquire a background of appreciation for the painting, sculpture and architecture of the past, they will develop the ability to understand and appreciate the art they will encounter throughout their lives.
