Art History Renaissance to 20th Century

This is part one of a year-long college-level survey course in art history. This course covers art history from the European Renaissance around 1300 A.D. until the Mid 20th Century

This course is designed as a basic college-level survey of art history. I provide an online textbook as well as study guides and worksheets. This course covers the language used to discuss art. A complete overview of art, culture, and architecture from the Renaissance to the 1950s.

Each work is covered in depth, the works physical or formal properties are discussed such as technology used to create the work, color, medium, materials, composition, and shading.

The symbolism of each work is discussed and how to interpret the interrelationship of symbols in a work of art.

This course is the actual content of a course I teach at an accredited college in California called Ohlone college.

I designed this course as a series of clear, non-jargon laden video lectures and texts designed to help any student who wants to pass AP art history and or any beginning level art history survey course.

art history in 11 reviews

I am a novice at art history so I wanted a gentle introduction.

Really enjoyed this course- it was the perfect introduction to art history for a beginner like myself.

I found myself compulsively looking at the next epoch and I appreciate that the Professor provided his well researched book at the end to complement his audio explanations of each period in art history.

Gave me a great overview of art history - very useful for teaching my elementary students as they love extra details which help them to remember This instructor is so incredibly knowledgeable.

Disregard the shortcomings and take pleasure from a broad brushstroke through more-recent art history!

This art history survey course as taught by Professor Kenney Mencher is superb.

It is a perfect overview of the art history by an artist.

It scratches the surface of art history enough to give you a solid overview and starting-point to learn further.

I advise this course to everyone who wants to have a basic understanding of art or just wants to learn art and art history.

I appreciate the academic approach - it was what I was hoping for as I have always wanted to take a proper college course in art history.

Nice rhythm and pace, easy to understand and the teacher’s got nice narrative voice Yes...just trying to gain some new perspective It is a VERY GOOD ART HISTORY COURSE This is a fascinating topic and taught in a straightforward way.
