Mrs. Erin Stoll

This is a course for students who are more interested in learning about art than the actual production of art. Students will explore the visual arts through art history, art theory, media, and cultural context. Students will learn related terminology and discuss the formal element and principles of design used in a work of art. Students will apply visual critical thinking techniques to art will evaluate a work of art from the aesthetical, formal, technical, and historical points of view as they distinguish the major historical art periods and stylistic movements of art, from which the work evolved. Students will explore the idea of the visual arts as a means to convey new ideas, information, and influence to the public. Students will easily transcend media barriers as they summarize the problems and concepts relevant to understanding and defining art. This course will increase understanding and aesthetical pleasures
