This course will explore the contributions of women artists to the western art tradition from the prehistoric era to the present day.  Visual language and art terminology will be used to examine a variety of artworks made by women from an assortment of historic, social, political and personal contexts.  Because women have been traditionally underrepresented and generally discouraged from participating in the visual arts, students will develop a critical eye and utilize writing to actively question and critique the art historical tradition.  Through this evaluation students will gain a general level of knowledge and appreciation for the contributions of women artists throughout history.
