    AP Art History

    This course is devoted to the study of Western art, which will include painting, sculpture and architecture.  The art will be representative of cultures of the ancient Middle East and Egypt, Greece, Rome, Europe in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and Modern Art.   A portion of study will be devoted to cultures beyond the European tradition.   You will find this college-level course to be exciting, challenging, and rewarding.  The course is open to Juniors and Seniors with no pre-requisites.  AP Art History is offered during the spring semester.
