This art class really opened my eyes to the reality of art around the world. I wasn’t so sure about taking an online art class but it turned out being so much more than I expected. I was also taking a cultural anthropology class which went along well with this class. I definitely had a western perspective on art, especially the art that came from Africa. I didn’t even think that Africa would have that much art let alone the intricate pieces that we studied. The art that comes from Africa is truly beautiful.
One of my favorite areas to study were the temples and pyramids. The video we watched on Machu Picchu was probably my favorite assignment. That site in itself is beyond words. Overall, my thoughts about art from around the world has changed. I’m aware of the differences and the different techniques used. I can gladly say I feel more “worldly” 🙂 and it feels good knowing I can differentiate between art from different cultures.
Thank you Ms. Perbetsky for a good semester!
