History of Art

This online course introduces visual literacy and art history with a focus on Modern Art of the 20th century. Students learn how to look at, talk about, and find meaning in a variety of visual art forms. We also discuss the social and political context in which famous artists were working and how this influenced their art. There is an emphasis on sharing ideas through online discussion and debate in order to foster collaborative learning. The wide range of interdisciplinary assignments allow for a variety of interesting and thought-provoking projects. Students in this course will be evaluated with a combination of online discussions, quizzes, a group project, and a reflection assignment. This course is offered through OntarioLearn by the host college, Durham college.
