From the Instructor:
A brief note of introduction. I'm Prudence Roberts and I've been teaching at PCC since 2001, both online and in the classroom at the Rock Creek campus. I am also a curator and freelance writer and have written essays on some of the artists I hope we'll discuss this term. Women in Art is one of my favorite classes, since there are so many amazing artists to talk about and to learn from, going all the way back to Greek and Roman times--and even earlier. So, while we'll definitely focus on modern and contemporary art, it's important to realize how many women worked as artists long before the present day.
Course Specific Requirements:
This class is taught entirely online. But I do ask you to visit a gallery or museum for one assignment. It is really important to see works of art in person. If you are in the Portland area, I will be arranging one field trip on a weekend. Attendance is not required, but recommended. If you can make this field trip, that would count as your museum/gallery visit. Here is the information on the two books you'll be using for this class. As you can see, they are not very expensive. While I prefer the latest edition of Chadwick, you can get by with the fourth. Books: ISBN: 9780140259971 Edition: 98 Status: 98 Title: GUERRILLA GIRLS'BEDSIDE COMPANION TO...
