Primary Instructor:

HABARI GANA! My desire is to introduce each student to the African-American artistic experience both historically and contemporarily. Each student has the opportunity to be culturally enriched, experience growth, develop and recognize aesthetic communication and references, increase sensitivity and economic value for the visual arts if students display willing attitudes and open mindedness.

The mission of the course is to develop critical and analytical skills in a variety of visual contexts. Students will be challenged to understand and define needs and influences of visual language and descriptive processes. The students’ foundation in both understanding and expression of the African American aesthetic is based on a knowledge of and exposure to contemporary and historical works and issues. Readings influence individual research, class handouts, video tapes and lectures.
