Syllabus Title: 
AP Art History
Syllabus Description: 

This course is equivalent to a two-semester college survey course exploring the nature and history of art and art making, as well as responses to art. By investigating specific course content of 250 works of art characterized by diverse artistic traditions from prehistory to the present, students develop in-depth, holistic understandings of the history of art from a global perspective. Students become active participants in the global art world, engaging with its forms and content. They experience, research, discuss, read, and write about art, artists, and art making, and analyze and critique art and responses to art.
