This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence and is aligned to the Advanced Placement curriculum for Art History. Students will examine major forms of artistic expression from the past and present and from a variety of cultures and will learn to look at these works of art critically, with intelligence and sensitivity, and to articulate what they see or experience. Schools must supply a proctor for the midterm and final exam. Course does not include the AP Exam; students can contact their school’s AP Coordinator or the College Board to sign up to take the Exam. In order to maintain the integrity of AP standards, all AP course midterm and final exams must be proctored.
