COMA 145 – Art Appreciation

The teaching approach for any theoretical delivery should be designed in a practical way to aid language problems. Minimum theory will be used to allow students to follow historical projects visually with opportunities for practical responses about major topics.  The use of traditional craft techniques to understand the relevant historical approach to local/Gulf Art Appreciation will be part of the course. It should also be noted that there is very little material available for Western history of art in the Emirates itself. However, there is a wealth of cultural and historical material for art appreciation, which can be drawn from Islamic Art, calligraphy and architecture.
