Series description from the instructor and art historian, Kathleen Key:

Part II of World Art picks ups where we left off last semester, after the Renaissance; Part III covers 20th century art to the present.  With World Art Parts I, II & III,  you will study the art of the whole world in one year, from prehistory to the 21st Century!  We 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.

Kathleen Key:  This series is taught by art historian and world traveler Kathleen Key. In addition to teaching many art history seminars for the Dona Ana Arts Council, Kathleen is a professor of art history at the University of Texas at El Paso and the OLLI Continuing Education Program at UTEP.
