Series description from the instructor and art historian, Kathleen Key:
In one year, you will study the art of the whole world from prehistory to the 21st Century! We will cover not only European art and art in North America from prehistoric period to contemporary times, but the art of China, Japan, Islam, Africa, Oceania and Native America. Come join us for one week, several weeks or the whole year!
We will be following the art history book “Gardner’s Art through the Ages”, Editors: Richard G. Tansey & Fred S. Kleiner. While not a requirement, students may want to get a copy of Gardner’s book. Many used copies are available locally or online; just make sure you get an edition that is dated 1986 or later, that contains the non-western areas like China, Africa, Islamic countries, etc.
