This multicultural art course investigates the artistic expressions of diverse ethnic and cultural groups in America. Examples of artistic expressions range from traditional ethnic artifacts like baskets and quilts to contemporary art like painting and sculpture. Students are encouraged to study the artistic expressions from their own/familiar groups. Students will read, explore, discuss with classmates and write about diverse artistic expressions, the creative processes, the artists' motivations, multiculturalism in art, and critical issues related to all the above topics. Assignments, including interactive online discussion, reading, writing, and hands-on projects, will enrich students' knowledge of artistic traditions and practices of diverse ethnic and cultural groups as well as foster students' ability to respond to the issues of multicultural art critically and sensitively.
