Advanced Placement Art History - Wyrick

Welcome to Advanced Placement Art History!

This course is designed for highly motivated college-bound students who have demonstrated academic achievement, higher order thinking skills, and the ability to work independently.  The course is the equivalent of a two-semester college course, and encourages critical thinking and an understanding and knowledge of diverse historical and cultural contexts of architecture, sculpture, painting and other media. Students examine and critically analyze major forms of artistic expression from the past and the present from a variety of cultures. An emphasis is placed on understanding how and why works of art function in context, considering such issues as patronage, gender, and the functions and effects of works of art.
