Instructor comments:

Greetings!
In ART101, we study the aesthetic and historical aspects of architecture focusing on the function, structure, and "beauty" of buildings. We will study basic architectural vocabulary and look at a general history of major monuments. This class mostly involves looking at architecture, reading, writing, written discussion, and two or three long/short-answer quizzes. As part of class we will look at examples of architecture “face-to-face.” We will tour Portland architecture as a group, or you may visit on your own. If you live in a different part of the world, I will work with you to find architecture to view and to share with the class.

Prerequisites: Prerequisites: WR 115, RD 115 and MTH 20 or equivalent placement test scores.

In lieu of a textbook, you will complete the course with the links to readings and video and other resources provided in the course site.
