Art History

  • Discover the timeless beauty of art

  • Take an Art History course and discover the timeless beauty of art. Learn about the history and development of significant artists, styles and works of art. Students will use critical inquiry and analytical thinking to explore paintings, sculptures and architecture from prehistoric times to the Gothic period and from the Renaissance to the present.

    Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

    - Edgar Degas, Painter (1834-1917)
