This course is designed to introduce the students to the early periods of art, from prehistoric up to the 19th Century, with emphasis on the European tradition. Students become familiar with the specific terminology used to understand and analyze art. They develop critical observation skills, and study historical works with respect to the elements of art (line, shape, colour, value and texture) with the objective to also understand art within its social, political and historical context.
