Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Zimmerman

Content:
This course explores how architecture, fashion, music, media and art changed in the face of political, social and economic factors in Modern National and International Art. Topics covered include, the art world, the rise of feminism in modern to post-modern worlds, as well as the values and originality placed on art. 

Students look at a range of artists and consider the message being portrayed through their imagery. Each work of art is an insight into the way society sees itself at any one particular moment. Art History is the perfect combination of historical fact and creative expression.

Students develop critical and creative thinking skills through debate, analysis, research, art making, and formal writing. 

Skills:
Analyse and interpret works of art within their cultural and historical contexts.

Investigate art issues and theories and their perception of the art world.
