AHST 101 Art, Design & Moving Image I

3 credits 45.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

The Ancient World and Middle Ages remain a mystery in many ways, but their inhabitants still whisper to us through early forms of writing, ceremonial objects, and storied stain-glass windows. In this introductory course, students will explore how contemporary design, fine arts, and even moving images find roots among the deserted caves and vaulted ceilings of centuries past. The course begins in Europe and includes global perspectives from The Near East, India, China, and Africa. Students will explore a diverse body of makers; a breadth of religious architecture; and art historians whose range of critical perspectives will help emerging creatives raise thought-provoking questions about the art and architecture of the distant past as well as their own respective practices.
