Art History I: Paleolithic Through Old Kingdom

This study group will be online.

Study Group Study Group
Study Group
The first in a sequence of three introductory art history courses, this study group will focus on works of art that demonstrate the ways in which artists documented their world.

Beginning in the pre-historic era artists painted cave paintings and carved images on stone and bison horn. In the subsequent Neolithic time period, technology and art joined to support the burgeoning agricultural society in the ancient Near East. The Sumerians, Akkadians, and Assyrians depicted their gods and religious rituals of their cultures, as well as the wars and empires that rose and fell. Contemporary with the Ancient Near Eastern civilizations were the Egyptians. We will focus on early Egyptian art and one of their pyramids as well as later sculptures of the human form, which became canonized and perfected in all media.

Instructor Molly Lindner brings eleven years of teaching art history at Kent State University to this subject. The diverse knowledge of the participants will lend to a lively discussion of these fabulous works of art.

This class meets on Tuesdays, from January 18 – February 22. No classes on holidays.

Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
