AR 104 - (UC) Survey of Non-Western Art
(3 cr.) Participants study the major themes and forms of non-Western arts from East Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Pre-Columbian Americas and Oceania, with emphasis on their cultural, philosophical and religious contexts. Students define works of art both formally and within the framework of their method of manufacture, audience and cultural value. They also explore aspects of various non-Western religions, cultural considerations and influences in relation to the works. Students with little experience of or no prior courses in art history learn the basic terminology and methodology of the field. Every Year, All
