This course covers modern art ("official" notion - from the second half of the XIXth century to the first half of the XXth century).
It´s themes, techniques, pioneer artists.
Materials included: PowerPoint, Text, Video in MP4.
The course is structured this way:
1. Art History (since pre- historic times);
2. Art Movements (Abstract / Cubism / Expressionism / Surrealism);
3. Artistic Categories (Drawing / Painting / Sculpture);
4. Traditional Art Themes (Landscape / Portrait, ...);
4. Art Techniques (Dripping / Collage / Grattage, ...).
