13ARTH

Level 3 Art History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms H. Kim

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. Therefore, it combines well with a range of other humanities subjects to create a stimulating foundation for tertiary education. As well as careers within arts, Art History students develop widely applicable skills: Working independently, writing essays, delivering presentations, undertaking research and analysing texts and images. In short, the subject breeds 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 Modern, Post-Modern and Contemporary international and New Zealand art, covering a range of art movements from 1940s to present, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Feminist Art and Contemporary art practices.
