HART260 Arts of Africa 3 cr.


Students examine royal, sacred and secular arts from Western, Central and Southern Africa in this survey course. The impact of the African Diaspora on belief systems and the arts in the United States, Brazil and Haiti also will be examined. The focus of study is on work in wood, metals, fibers, clay and body decoration and modification. Form, design, technique and what they reveal about women’s and men’s roles in the community will be examined.
