Level 2 Art History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

Level Two Art History

Art History helps our understanding of the present and future through the analysis of the past. Emphasis will be on art, how and why it was made, providing opportunities for students to gain an insight into its social history, economics, politics and culture. Art History students develop widely applicable skills: writing essays, delivering presentations, undertaking research and analysing texts and images. Students will begin to become culturally aware independent thinkers, avid researchers and passionate communicators whose knowledge stretches far beyond the art which first drew them to the subject. Focus for this course will be on the 17th century art produced in France, covering a range of key art movements such as Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. This course is designed to extend the knowledge and skills taught at Level 1 English and History. Level 1 literacy is a requirement for this course.
