Art History | Guerin Catholic High School


Art History
Grades 10-12
Prerequisite: none

Art History is a survey course that will cover artwork and artifacts of world cultures from prehistoric up through contemporary. Students taking Art History engage in learning experiences that encompass art history, art criticism, and aesthetics through lecture and debate. Through discussion and other activities the class will analyze, interpret, theorize, and make informed judgments about artwork and the nature of art. There will also be a small amount of production where we will at times try out historically relevant studio techniques. Students will also be utilizing the resources of art museums, galleries, and studios.
