PSEO Fine Arts
Art Appreciation - FAR 1560 - 3 credits (Crown College)
Instructor: Michelle Foster
Class Type: One semester course offered spring semester only. Students from WEST can take classes in a hybrid format in which they meet for an hour and a half face-to-face with a qualified course assistant selected by WEST and approved by Crown. The rest of the weekly activities for classes are online, led by one of Crown’s online faculty members. This option gives students the opportunity to get support from a familiar homeschool course assistant while taking a high quality online course under the guidance of a credentialed faculty member from Crown. The courses have a low student to instructor ratio and are offered in a 15 week format. All PSEO students are supported by a dedicated PSEO academic advisor.
Course Description: An introductory study of art appreciation that examines significant art and artists associated with major art movements with a special emphasis on historic and contemporary art reflecting Christian beliefs.
