CRWT 226 Arts Criticism & Reviewing

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

This craft seminar will engage students with great art, expanding their experience of looking and hearing while learning about arts criticism and arts reviewing. Students will investigate not only the world of great books, of great paintings in museums, great plays performed by major theatre companies, great music performed by world-class ensembles, but also discover art about which there is little or no received opinion: at the Fringe, at First Friday, at university theatrical and musical performances. Such work is often not great, and thus students will learn to identify and hone their standards of evaluation. Substantial reading and performance attendance will be required.

Prerequisites COMP*102, COMP*102E, COMP*112, or COMP*112H

This course is not repeatable for credit.
