Survey of Western Art History: Part II

 
Art History Survey Series begins tonight! Please note that the class will now be meeting in room 415 at the 1010 Westwood Center (not on UCLA campus).
 
We’re happy to have Mary Beth back, and know she’s excited to start class again. Part II of the series begins in the Proto-Renaissance in Italy and proceeds to a full study of Renaissance art in both southern and northern Europe. The course continues with the study of Mannerism in Italy, Baroque art throughout Europe, and concludes with Rococo. Artists and artworks studied are a select group representing the high points in cultural achievement, including Giotto, Jan van Eyck, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Dürer, Holbein, Rubens, Velasquez, and Rembrandt. There are also two field trips, one to the Getty and one to LACMA.

Who Are We – Visual Arts

If you’re dropping by this blog but are not familiar with who we are or what we do, here’s a little introduction.

UCLA Extension is the continuing education arm of UCLA. Here in the visual arts program, we offer open enrollment courses in fine art (including drawing, painting, mixed media, etc), art history, and photography. That means that anyone can enroll – you don’t have to be a UCLA student, and there’s no formal application process to go through. We program our own classes, separately from campus (although we do offer courses that carry UC transfer credit), and our instructors are working professionals in their fields.

Most of our courses are offered on weekday evenings, or on weekends, and our students are largly working professionals who have a passion for the arts and want to keep their practice active, or just learn more about figuration, Photoshop, or the masters of the Renaissance.

You can see samples of our students’ work on this blog, and a few instructor images included below. Click here to see what we’re offering this quarter. There are courses appropriate for all experience levels, and we provide a classroom environment that is supportive yet challenging.
