The Visual Arts: History, Techniques, and Christian Philosophy
ART 200 CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHY OF THE VISUAL ARTS
This course is recommended as a prerequisite for any Christian student who has a general interest in history, is interested in the Biblical philosophy dealing with the arts, or wishes to pursue an education in any field of the creative arts. This is not a hands-on course.
Course Description: Beginning in Genesis and continuing through various portions of Scripture, students will gain a strong insight into God’s purpose for all of the creative arts, including the important responsibilities of artisans, as ordained by God. Focusing on the visual arts in particular, students will get a brief overview of the historical genres, trends, and their influences pertaining to western culture. They will also learn about how the “art world” generally works, its influence upon society, the various employment opportunities, and how faithful Christians should dominate this important area in our culture.
Format: Students will receive the course syllabus, CD lectures, and other necessary material upon receipt of their payment for the course. Periodic meetings will be arranged to allow students to discuss the material and analyze various pieces of art together based upon Biblical principles.
Requirements: The student’s participation and contribution at the meetings are considered in the final grade. An analysis of an artist’s work, as well as a final research paper, will be required for this course.
Tuition: $150.00 (2 Credit Hours @$75/hr)
