Art History Syllabus

  1. 1. Quincy High School, Art History Syllabus Bell abellqhs@gmail.com Quincy High School’s Art History class is a chronological survey of the history of major art forms in the western tradition, in addition to selected works from many cultures that exist beyond European tradition. The text will be Gerald Brommer’s Discovering Art History. You can expect written assignments as well as plenty of reading. Four graded assignments will be given every term including papers, presentations, quizzes and tests. You’ll be taking notes weekly, so get a nice new notebook with a pocket for handouts. You’ll want to keep them for the Midtem Exam and the Artist Book / Notebook due at the end of the year. For Advanced Placement Credit, you must take the AP art history exam, offered at several nearby schools. See Mr. Bell or your guidance counselor for more information on Advanced Placement examinations, and college credits for advanced placement students.
