Art Appreciation/Education ping.

The last of this series of "lectures."

Forgive the double ping if you are also on the Art Ping list.

Thank you for posting your essays.

Through 4 years of HS art and 3 years of art school I never was offered an Art History class. It wasn't until college that I was first exposed to actually placing art in the context of the time it was created, and learning how it both reflected and shaped the contemporary world. Every artist came alive for me then, as I grew to know them more deeply a thumbnail sketch. What a shame it took so long in the educational process!
