Course description:

A beginning course in the fundamental concepts of the visual arts; the language of form and the media of artistic expression. The course includes readings and slide lectures supplemented by museum exhibition attendance, and meets New Mexico Lower-Division General Education Common Core Curriculum Area V: Humanities and Fine Arts.

The course will introduce fundamental concepts and forms of artistic expression as they evolved within the Western tradition. It will then explore their current manifestation within today’s global perspective, and in more depth, within the living legacy of Taos arts, with particular focus on the wide range of works in the Harwood collections.
