How to Look at Art (SEMR211-36)

This course provides students with the tools and guidelines necessary to look at a work of art and understand its formal and conceptual considerations, as well as its historical and social context. Through a series of slide presentations, readings and discussions, students will discover that there is much more to any work than first meets their eyes. Students develop the skills necessary to articulate what they see to make an in-depth analysis of any work of art, including any artwork out there in the world, as well as their own work.
