This practical beginner's guide to appreciating and experiencing culture provides a handy introduction to the world of art that teaches students how to observe, enjoy, and analyze the arts.

Professor Philip Bishop wrote this book because there was no concise handbook on the market covering the arts as a whole. His text provides a succinct and affordable guide to the arts and humanities geared to students who are starting from scratch in their study of the arts. Self-contained chapters provide an essential companion guide to understanding a specific discipline–including painting, sculpture, music, and theater–with a clear and insightful explanation of the discipline’s process of creation.
