  • Do you approach your art appreciation/introduction to art course from the artist's perspective?
    • A focus on art as seen from the artist's point of view provides students with an informed understanding of the fine and applied arts of the world.
    • An emphasis on aesthetics and art techniques provides students with details about the philosophical foundations, elements, principles of design, and technical considerations of each medium. This conveys a sense of what artists are really trying to do and how.
    • Four-part organization--Part I lays the foundation for seeing; Parts II and III view two-and three-dimensional art; and Part IV approaches art as it exists in time. Students are introduced to basic aesthetic works of art, and the materials and techniques used by artists.
    • An in-depth chapter on four specific works of art--Features Picasso's Guernica, Rodin's Gates of Hell, Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling, and Moshe Safdie's Vancouver Library Square. This chapter asks students to draw on the appreciation skills that they developed throughout the book.
  • How do you engage your students?
    • Thoroughly updated content to include current topics and new trends--e.g., installation; video and performance art; encaustic; fresco; wood engraving; and earthworks. Student are familiarized with many forms of creative expression.
    • Multi-cultural coverage includes contemporary Caribbean, Vietnamese, Chinese, and African art. This familiarizes students with works taken from varied cultures and historical periods, showing students a broad range of aesthetic approaches to art.
    • Artist boxes share quotes from artists about some facet of their work related to the subject under discussion. This offers students insights into art from the artist's point of view.
    • Maps with timelines--Provides a global historical context for the evolution of Western art. Shows students the regions where major trends in Western art were developed and the site of major art and artworks.
