This course is designed as a high-level, challenging course with similar rigor to that found in the collegiate classroom. We will operate under college-level assumptions. AP Art History covers approximately 30,000 years of art creation, from the Prehistoric and Neolithic periods to Twentieth Century, Postmodern, International, and current art trends. Though a brief survey of Asian, African, Islamic, and other Eastern Art is studied, the bulk of this year-long class covers mainly Europe and the rest of the Western World. The course studies historical transition of art periods, as well as how culture, religion, government, and history reflect the personal and sociological art trends throughout the existence of humans.
