The course introduces art through formal elements, medium, historical context, and themes.

Case studies will include painting, sculpture, architecture, design, printmaking, photography, among others. The course also incorporates mandatory assignments and activities related to a local museum, for example, the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields.
