The goal of this course is to help students to feel confident in talking about the arts and to take pleasure in that confidence, as well as to feel at home in the various venues that exhibit art and performance at Berkeley. We will discuss how best to look at and interpret works of visual arts exhibited at the Berkeley Art Museum; we will attend dance and theater events at Cal Performances, and we may include something in the City. Most weeks we will attend either the museum or a performance event on campus, then discuss that in class. The class usually gets 75% discounts for Cal Performance events. But they will have to pay in other ways by providing occasional one-page reviews that will be the basis for class discussion.
