This course examines the development of Renaissance art from the late medieval period to the beginning of the 16th century. Particular attention is given to Northern art, often obscured by its more popular Italian counterpart. The course, though focusing on art, will include history, architecture, social history, literature and music in order to give a holistic understanding of the period. Different artistic expressions will be considered, including fashion, dancing, singing and embroidery. Students will be able to personally experience, perform and create artwork. They will be trained in both portraiture and perspective, and asked to produce two artworks accordingly.

Candidates must possess an MFA in Art History, and have experience teaching undergraduate students.

Candidates must reside in California.
