Course Overview

Art Appreciation is an introduction to the principles and concepts used in the study and analysis of the fine arts, in order to achieve a basic understanding of art and artistic concerns. Art Appreciation studies the major cultural achievements and significant artistic works that have shaped Western culture.

The approach to this course is to study the arts in an historical context beginning with the earliest artistic expressions of ancient societies and extending to twentieth century. The student will develop an understanding and appreciation of art by understanding its purpose, terminology, various disciplines, and its history. We will discuss the basic vocabulary of art and the different mediums used. The major concentration of this course will be the visual arts.

A variety of learning methods will be used in order for students to become familiar with art, artists, and art making. Through reading, online discussions, and various related web sites, students will receive a broad introduction to the nature of art.
It is my hope that in taking this course you will develop a greater understanding of art, heighten your awareness of what we respond to in a work of art, and develop an appreciation of why what an artist has done is important.

During this session you will see many diverse works of art. Some you will like others you may not. It is not my goal to try and convince you to like any work of art, but to share some of what is known about them so that a deeper understanding may begin. Then, when you look at a work of art you like or dislike, you may say "I love it" or "I hate it, but at least I understand it."

Discussions

There will be at least one discussion for every week in the course (Weeks 1 and 8 have two). Each discussion topic is worth 35 points (initial and peer discussion responses).

Your initial post to the weekly topic (25 points) should be completed by 11:59 pm CT Friday of the assigned week. In addition to responding to the instructor’s prompt, you must read your classmates’ posts and respond to a minimum of two of your classmates’ comments (10 points possible). Peer discussion responses are due by 11:59 pm CT Saturday of the assigned week.

Posting thoughtful, stimulating responses is encouraged. While your response posts do not need to be as detailed or thorough as your primary post, they should be though provoking and contribute to the topic and conversation in a meaningful way. Responses are also graded, so give your responses thought.

Your grade will be based on the level of thought you gave the topic and your responses to other students’ remarks. Discussion postings will be graded according to the grading criteria outline in the course. I will post your Discussion grades on the Monday after the discussion is due.

Please note: You must enter your responses as text and not document attachments. Discussion posts or participation responses attached as documents will receive zero credit.

Quizzes

Each week you will complete a 50-point quiz over the material we’ve covered for the week. They are comprised of multiple-choice and/or matching questions, and should be taken once you have completed the assigned material for the week. Quizzes are auto-graded and your score will be posted once you submit your quiz. Correct answers are released on Mondays after the quiz availability period has ended.
