A World of Art is an art appreciation course that covers the sweep of Western art from its earliest sources to its most recent developments. The course covers a range of media that have defined visual art over time: painting and sculpture, architecture and decorative arts, photography and drawing, mixed media, assemblage and installation art. A World of Art discusses ways that the visual arts have echoed the human experience across the ages.

Course content is drawn from the Teaching Company's "Art Across the Ages" course by Professor Ori Z. Soltes.
