It is my hope that in taking this course you will develop a greater understanding of art, heighten your awareness of what we respond to in a work of art, and develop an appreciation of why what an artist has done is important.
During this session you will see many diverse works of art. Some you will like others you may not. It is not my goal to try and convince you to like any work of art, but to share some of what is known about them so that a deeper understanding may begin. Then, when you look at a work of art you like or dislike, you may say "I love it" or "I hate it, but at least I understand it."
