This course is a study of the human experience as revealed through works of art. Students connect art and history by researching events and cultures that have inspired the “stories” told via painting, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, ceramics and photography. Students are expected to research, present and defend point papers, collaborate in discussion forums and prepare a book of artistic contributions within significant themes. This course does not have NCAA approval as a core course for potential Division I and Division II athletes. This course is open to students in 11th and 12th grade. (Semester, .50 credit)
