This course provides an introduction to the language of the visual arts and a foundation for individual understanding and enjoyment of art. This class will focus on how art communicates, how to analyze and interpret it, and how we can see it as a cultural product that reveals something about the society that produced it. The first part of the course covers the basics of art theory and practice. The second part contextualizes art in history while also interweaving materials, art techniques, and new technologies. Class sessions will move between lecture and in-class discussions. This course meets the Mason Core Arts requirement.
