Being made in His image, God imparted to humanity the gift of creativity. The record of virtually every culture is found in its art and by studying art history – an integrated exploration of history, science, mathematics, philosophy, and the Scriptures. The course is taught through a biblical lens and covers a general survey of Western art history, from the caves of Lascaux to the artists of the twenty-first century. There will be readings, in-depth slide presentations, writing projects, and art projects that will help students learn to "read" and analyze significant works of the past and build artistic literacy in our present culture. Homework will be approximately 2-3 hours per week.
Minimum age of 12 on the first day of class.
