Product Description

Following on Art History 1, this course continues the student's research on the history of art, covering Pre- through Post-Impressionism, Modern, Non-Western and traditional art forms. Some excellent reference materials are recommended, but others may be substituted.

The student continues to do art activities related to the types of art he is viewing so that he can then create and view art from a better understanding of prior ideas and techniques.
