“Annenberg Media’s newest course resource Art Through Time: A Global View has premiered on Learner.org at www.learner.org/courses/globalart/ . The course materials cover art history throughout time and in many cultures across the globe by examining hundreds of paintings, drawings, sculptures, photos, and objects used for domestic or ceremonial purposes. The 13 video programs with accompanying online text units take a thematic approach by considering how, for example, portraits were created to convey political power, wealth or to call attention to the hierarchy of the social order. More than 125 scholars, art curators, and artists comment on the works and the themes and more than 250 can be viewed and sorted on the course web site. ”
