AR 110 - Exploration of the Visual Arts (3)

By observing and discussing masterworks as well as engaging in their own creative process to produce an object of self-expression, students gain knowledge and understanding of the visual arts as both a process and a product. Students will visit galleries, and through primary observation of artists’ work and by analysis of what they think they see and their personal responses, gain understanding through discussion as well as research into the artistic, historical, social and cultural context for the work. Through hands-on projects, discussion and critique of these art projects and the students’ own creative process, students will gain insight and perspective about their personal reaction to, and interaction with, the visual arts. Students will gain insight into the role that the arts play in a variety of world cultures, as well as the role art plays in the life of the artist as markmaker and creator.
