Europe Art History & Visual Arts trip 2019
"Fine art is knowledge made visible" - Gustave Courbet
Art History explores how art reflects the values, ideas and developments of the time through the study of key art works (painting, sculpture, architecture, design) and the artists who made them.
Students with an interest in the visual arts, classics, history and culture will gain skills in visual literacy and critical thinking that can be applied to a broad range of tertiary studies as well as many career pathways, in particular, architecture, art and design, visual communication and media. Students will be encouraged to make connections to their own world and contemporary culture.
No practical art skills are required to study Art History and the course is designed to both engage and extend students with no prior knowledge of the subject. Additional to the range of academic benefits gained, Art History is culturally enriching and leads to a lifetime of art appreciation.
Students can choose an internal-only course or a combination of internal and external assessment.
