For those interested in joining our Western Art Survey, Fall is the perfect time to start! Part I covers the early periods of art history–from the dawn of the great civilizations in the Near East through the Middle Ages. It’s rare that students are able to delve into this early time period over the course of 12 weeks. Plus, class includes a trip to LACMA as well as the Getty Villa, to see the works in question close up.
This survey has been one of our most popular and enduring offerings, due to its wonderful instructor Mary Beth Carosello. Students rave about her, and take as many classes as she is able to offer. As one student wrote:
“Mary Beth is just extraordinary. Her teaching style is so open and enthusiastic that you kind of get mesmerized: it’s contagious. She is incredibly knowledgeable about art from all ages and loves comments and questions from the class. The visits to the museums were a treat as well. I am only sorry that we have now done all three classes in the series.”
