Fall 2020 Course Offering: ARTH 200 – Native North American Art

T.C. Cannon, Tosca, woodcut print, 1978

Queens College is pleased to offer Art History 200 – Native North American Art as an online course for the Fall semester! This course is a broad survey of Native North American art as produced by a range of interrelated but distinct cultural zones. As such, the course samples from the arts of people from the Eastern Woodlands and Mississippian cultures; the Great Plains and Great Basin; the Southwest Pueblos and California; and the Pacific Northwest and the Arctic. The study of each region concludes with a consideration of individual modern and/or contemporary Native artists.

In its exploration of Native America’s multiple modes of visual expression, this online course includes multi-media presentations (PowerPoints and video links), biweekly reading & writing assignments, online Forum discussions, and a term paper.

This is a rigorous reading-intensive survey. As such, it is best suited to self-motivated students who bring a natural curiosity about the subject as well as a love of reading. The instructor will provide detailed guidance on the research and writing approaches required for this course.
