Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
1 Justify the idea that art is historical and its variable meaning according to epochs and cultures;
2 Encourage curiosity and contact with art through visits and lectures on art;
3 Take contact with the very language of art in every age;
4 Understand the importance of theory as the basis of good practice of architecture.
A journey through the history of Western art, accompanied by personal and direct contact with certain works and thinking about art and culture in general produced through the ages.
Guided by the periods identified by art historians over time, we will try to understand these periods, styles and characteristics with the social and cultural movement, so as to understand that the history of art cannot be understood outside the temporal and spatial cradle that gives rise to it.
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
A learning of the history of purely theoretical art is insufficient, just as learning only by contact with works of art without critical support would be equally deficient. Students are expected to have a sense of important moments in art history, and their social and cultural background, but have direct contact with the great works of the various arts. The organization of the plan of this discipline tries to contemplate this two aspects.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
The teaching method is comprised of the teacher's presentation, the students' research (which will present in the classroom, subject to evaluation, the result of this research) and the contact with some forms of artistic expression (and written presentation of a brief report of that contact, also eligible for evaluation). A unique test aims to assess how each student is able to think the history of art in its various stages and characteristics.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
If the teaching objectives of this discipline go through the assimilation of the most important ideas of each period of art history, and the awakening of interest in art in general, the methodology chosen, which aims at personal responsibility and commitment of students' commitment to discipline , performs this consistency satisfactorily.
