World Art I this Summer Session II

By Lori Dugan

Thatcher, AZ—Students wishing to get ahead or catch up this summer will be happy to learn that Eastern Arizona College is offering World Art I during Summer Session II this year. The class, ART133, section #7196, will meet weekdays from 9-10:50 a.m., in Academic Programs Building #115.

This course meets the Humanities requirement for associate degrees, transfers to each Arizona University, and meets the Global/International/Historical Awareness (GIH) requirement.

World Art I offers a survey of the history of art from the Paleolithic period to the Renaissance, introduces awareness of historical and national styles, and develops an increased sense of the interdependence of art, geography, politics, religion, economics, science, philosophy, and literature.

No textbook is required, and a free study guide will be made available to students who enroll.

“This course is indispensable to students in any of the fine and applied arts and gives important historical context to anyone working in an artistic field,” says Andrew Turley, instructor for the course.

“Come join us as we view and discuss art in a relaxed, summer setting. In many cases art is the best or only record we have of ancient and prehistoric cultures,” concludes Turley.

Summer Session II classes begin on July 5, and registration can be accomplished through the second day of class.
