Earth Art
Instructor: Birchett, Brad

Time: TR, 2-315 pm, November 4 - December 4

The Earth Art course will provide insight into art history and the associated anthropological relationships to past and present cultures. Through the study of ancient forms (Stonehenge, Nazca Lines, etc.) and the associated creation-theories, students of this course will begin to see the relationship of art to life. Making the connection of these forms to present-day artworks will enhance their experience and give it meaning and clarity as well as hopefully assist in understanding the relationship and importance of art to existing cultures.
