centuries. Beginning with the art of Europe and the United States, the

Century Art and Asian Art will serve as the starting point for discussions
and workshops that stress an interdisciplinary, multicultural approach to
looking at and thinking about art. Teachers are encouraged to see art in a

including description, analysis, interpretation and judgment. Small group
discussions are supplemented by lectures, performances, hands-on activities
in the studios, journal writing and field trips to other collections.
