A.P. Art History
A.P. Art History meets weekday mornings. The curriculum addresses world cultures, ways in which artistic tastes, styles, and technologies have changed through the ages, political and religious messages behind works of art, and space and meanings in architecture. Students learn to identify works of art by artist or period, to analyze individual works of art in depth, to compare and contrast art from different cultures and time periods, and to examine influences in art. The course is free and offered for academically motivated students in grades 10 through 12 from all schools and the homeschool community.
For more information about the 2018/19 course, please contact Alice Novak at email@example.com or call 334.625.4361.
