The Heart of Art

Connecting with humanity

In our courses, you’ll discover connections between art and life that you never knew existed.

Science fiction movies, for example, are more a critique on the present than a prediction about the future. And did you know that Christianity, Judaism and Islam share a belief in the Old Testament?

Ask your classmates to name the first work of art that comes to mind. Mona Lisa will win by a landslide.
