As many of you have most likely heard, CMHS is getting a brand new class next year: art history. Those who are passionate about art and want to learn the history of it will be interested in this new course being offered.

The class will be taught by Suze Gibson, who teaches dual credit U.S. History and has been with CMHS for 8 years. Gibson has a degree in art history, along with a history degree. “I’m very excited about offering a new art history class at Civic Memorial. Art history is my passion, and having been given the opportunity to teach it as a college-level class at CM is amazing,” said Gibson.

The class is open to juniors and seniors with at least an overall 3.0 GPA and a C or better in English. It is a dual credit course, offered through Lewis and Clark Community College.

Because it is a college credit class, students will be required to write a research paper. However, the class will go over multiple points of study, so students should be able to find a topic that interests them, Gibson said.

Art history falls under the humanities category for general education classes at the college level, and anyone earning an associate degree or a bachelor’s degree will have to take some type of humanities class, so this will be a great class to take while still in high school.

The class will be covering the major periods of art in Western Civilization, from prehistoric art to the Middle Ages, including different mediums like painting, sculpting, and architecture.

Students will learn new terminology and concepts that apply to art, along with looking at the history to provide the background for each period.

“Art is a reflection or representation of society, and you can’t just look at the art of the Egyptians without understanding their religion, or at Greek art without knowing their gods,” said Gibson.

Many students are excited for the opportunity to take this class.

Junior Kimmy Seeley said, “I actually want to major in art history. I’m excited because this class will give me background information on the subject before going into college.”

Junior Elliott Deardeuff said, “I’m excited for art history because I plan on majoring in design and art history will give me a great background for my career.”
