dc.description.abstract In reviewing the years of my incumbency at B.C., I feel that I myself have gained much, and that my teaching plans can now be crystallized on a surer and sounder basis. I believe that the Introduction to Art, as I have developed it during the last three or four years, is now a good working plan. It is intended to give the student a fairly broad general background in art. All Students desiring to secure a knowledge of the arts in a general sense, will benefit, regardless of whether they are going to major in Art or in any other field. Minor changes in this course could easily be made in correlation with other courses...The following would be a tentative outline for the course; A combined theoretical and studio course in which to give the student a knowledge of the most important epochs of the History of Art....Particular emphasis on form is desired to clarify the power of human ingenuity, and to reveal the religious and social background and also the development and progress of human mentality..Reading matter is assigned for each week..Sculpture as a basic course...This leads to the development of a sense of composition and the [...]of form and space relationships. Individual criticism is made.. en_US
