Hello and Welcome Back!

Introduction to Art History

Yes, Summer is Really Over.

School begins Wednesday, August 21. There is no zero period on the first day of school. We will be meeting at 7:00 am in Room 202. The first week of school we will meet both Thursday and Friday. Our regular meeting schedule throughout the year will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.


Thirteen years ago I took this course in high school and was so inspired that I pursued Art History as my undergraduate degree in college. Even if this is the first and last Art History class you take, I guarantee it will change how you view the world. I look forward to meeting each of you on Thursday.


Each week you will have this "flyer" posted in Blackboard and emailed to you to relay important information and to give you a brief agenda of the week. I'll also include some fun things possibly related (or not) to the course. I love short films. Be prepared for a weekly short.
