So you’re taking your first art history course.

caravaggista:

If this describes you, congratulations! Art history will undoubtedly be one of the most visually and memory intensive courses you’ll take in college, but it is extremely rewarding, as no other field sharpens your analytical and writing skills quite like art history does. 

I recently had an undergraduate student ask me, on test day, if I could tell her what the word “patron” meant. This made me a bit worried for her, since it’s the tenth week of the semester here and “patron” is basic art historical vocabulary that we’ve been using all semester in class. I want to help those of you taking your very first art history survey or upper-level lecture course by going over expectations you should have and tips for studying. I won’t discuss seminars in this post, since seminars (in my experience) are only able to be taken if you’ve had survey course(s) and upper-level lecture course(s), by which point students will likely know all of the below. (If you’d like tips for taking an art history seminar, you can always send me an Ask!)
