Synopsis

Experiencing Art Around Us by Thomas Buser

Learn to understand, judge and experience art with EXPERIENCING ART AROUND US and its accompanying CD-ROM. Buser examines the traditional visual media of painting, sculpture and architecture, as well as recent areas such as urban design and preservation, photography and film. Integrating Western and non-Western art, this textbook will expose you to a wide variety of artistic works from around the world and provides up-to-date coverage of the contemporary art scene. Analyzing a single work from four different points of view, EXPERIENCING ART AROUND US will give you a wider variety of study aids than any other text on the market. The ArtExperience CD-ROM that comes with your text contains studio art demonstrations, interactive exercises that explore the foundations of art, and image flashcards, ideal for preparing for tests.
