Approaches to Art
Students will not only learn the parts of art, they will develop, step by step, a deeper understanding of art’s power to communicate on multiple levels—universal, cultural, and personal. Each chapter includes an art history exercise, a studio exercise, and discussion questions. The assignments can easily be customized to focus on art history or studio art, as appropriate for specific courses and modalities.
Approaches to Art empowers students to approach any work of art with the ability to see and appreciate far more than they could before. Developed and class-tested over a period of years, it is an ideal textbook for general education courses in introductory art history and art appreciation.
