About

Art and Art History from Rhodes College gives students, regardless of experience or major, the opportunity to develop sensitivity to visual language through studio work and the study of the history of art.  

Overview

The Art and Art History department at Rhodes College requires a balanced program in studio and art history that may be augmented to suit students’ particular interests and needs.

The offerings in the history of art are designed to help the student develop the skills of analytical thinking about art; to understand the processes by which art is made, the ideas guiding its production, and the patterns of its consumption within both its historical and subsequent contexts; to develop visual literacy through the recognition of various languages of world art; and to respond critically to their ideological implications. Specialized topics in the history of art may be undertaken by means of directed inquiries.

Studio courses are designed to train students in the conception and production of art; to master fundamental skills necessary for the successful execution of work in various media (including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and architectural design); and to investigate, through studio practice, processes, themes, and materials in light of their historical and contemporary connotations.

Graduates with Art and Art History from Rhodes College will:

  • develop the skills of analytical thinking about art; 
  • understand the processes by which art is made, the ideas guiding its production, and the patterns of its consumption within both its historical and subsequent contexts;
