AR 1130 - Introduction to Non-Western Art


(3)
This course explores the arts of Africa, Oceania, and Native America. The formal and expressive language of the arts can transcend cultural barriers and create a dialogue not only with individuals within one’s own culture, but also with individuals and cultures separated from us by time and space. This language is a way of enlarging our understanding of the human condition. AR 1130 aims to expand the student’s worldview by introducing and exploring the visual and performance arts from the earliest archaeological finds to contemporary creations from Sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania (Polynesia and Melanesia) and the Native Americans. In doing so, the course aims to increase the student’s awareness of local art museums and art resources, improve visual acuity and research skills, and enhance descriptive and writing skills.
