Section Description

In an image saturated culture, it is important to be able to approach images and the processes of image-making with a discerning eye. In this class you will be introduced to the basics of western art history from the ancient world to the medieval period. Through lectures and readings, you will see examples of how art historians learn about societies and cultures by examining how people represent themselves through visual culture. We will examine prominent artifacts, works of art, and architecture within the framework of historical and cultural developments.

Section Expectation

With the successful completion of this course, students will develop a familiarity with the timeline of early art history, practice identifying materials, styles, and contexts of art, and think critically about images.


In this asynchronous online course, students will develop vocabulary, skills and strategies to communicate about art through watching lectures and completing reading and writing assignments.
