« back to classes page
The history of art is a multidisciplinary science, seeking an objective examination of art throughout time and across cultures, observing the distinctive and influential characteristics of art and their relationship to humankind. The study of the history of art was initially developed in the Renaissance, with a limited focus on western civilization. As time has passed, this once narrow scope has broadened to encompass the larger visual language of humans and our collective global history. Discuss and explore the history and journey of art and visual language from the use of tools to why certain colors inspire great emotion in the beholder and the impact of the Cave of Forgotten Dreams, site of the oldest cave paintings yet discovered. Please note: This class will travel to museums and art-oriented locations around Albuquerque following first session.
