A Panoramic View of Art History, An Introduction is the beginning of a series of Art History related lectures where we will explore vocabulary, elements of art, art history methods, the lives and work of specific artists, as well as art projects that relate to the lessons at hand. This course wants to ensure a way of teaching Art History that provides many different ways of approaching art and its context.
Hello, my name is Merritt! I am a student at Yale University where I study Art History and Studio Art. I am personally very passionate about painting and graphic design, specifically, book design. I grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico where I was always surrounded by art. When I was younger I volunteered at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum where I first participated in arts education. I now tour-guide at the Yale Center for British Art where I teach visitors about the collection. I am interested in making art more accessible and hope that shows through in my videos!
