016) Greek Art for Everyone

This course will trace the history of Greek Art from its beginnings in the Ancient Aegean to its flowering during the age of Alexander. Knowledge of Greek history is not necessary to enjoy this class. Instruction will include slides of frescoes, statuary, and architectural elements. This course is not a boring lecture class—expect to be involved in lively discussions, active visual analysis, and jokes about nudity. No previous knowledge of art history or evidence of artistic skill required.
