Study Guide for Fichner-Rathus' Understanding Art, 8th / Edition 8

This innovative workbook-style learning resource follows the textbook chapter-by-chapter. Written by Ruth Pettigrew (Colorado State University), it truly guides the student through the chapter and beyond. To help students learn the terms, artworks, and concepts in each chapter, the Study Guide goes beyond rote memorization and low-level questions by having students learn how to swiftly sketch a piece of art so that they will be better able to recall, interpret, and compare it. The assignments and projects work to foster an understanding of art in different media and time periods. Sections include "Understanding Concepts," "Making Connections," and "Enhancing Your Observational Powers."
