Analyze, Understand, AppreciateLiving with Artprovides the tools to help students think critically about the visual arts. Using a wealth of examples, the first half of the text examines the nature, vocabulary, and elements of art, offering a foundation for students to learn toanalyze arteffectively. The latter half sets out a brief but comprehensive history of art, leading students tounderstand artwithin the context of its time and place of origin. High quality images from a wide range of periods and cultures bring the art to life, and topical essays throughout the text foster critical thinking skills.Taken together, all of these elements help students to betterappreciate artas a reflection of the human experience and to realize that living with art is living with ourselves.
