ART 1600 - Inside Art: A Global Perspective

Credits: 4
Field trips are integral to the course where the art museums and galleries become the classroom. As a general introduction to the history of art, “Inside Art” encourages an understanding of purposes and techniques, and emphasizes the relationship of an art work’s form to its meaning. For every gallery or museum visit (approximately five) a 2-3 pp. paper is required as a record of the student’s experience. The Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester (NH), the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, the DeCordova Art Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, and the McCoy Gallery, The Rogers Center, are among the potential sites. “Inside Art” is designed for non-majors who are interested in a general introduction to world art (from prehistoric Europe to Egypt, China, ancient Greece and Rome, Oceania, Africa, modern Europe and the Americas) from an art historical perspective.
