Course Overview

Art has played a significant role in every major civilization throughout the history of man. The
emergence of different art forms often reflects the values that a civilization deems important:
religion, labor, love, political change, or even commerce. Since artwork and cultural values
are so closely related, studying art is a compelling way to learn about the people who
produced it.

• Identify the main concepts of art, expression, and creativity and basic design principles.
