Description:

"Living with Art s " approach to art appreciation supports students acquisition of the essential skills of the course. Mark Getlein s vivid narrative, in concert with McGraw-Hill s powerful adaptive learning program LearnSmart within CONNECT Art, helps students understand, analyze, and appreciate the ways art work communicates to us in our visual world. In doing so, "Living with Art " provides the foundation for a life-long appreciation of art, as well as critical thinking skills that will benefit students far beyond the classroom into their chosen careers.Students are invited to actively join in the discussion from Chapter 1. The narrative engages them in the stories of art, while the integrated digital assessments in CONNECT Art challenge them to build a fluency in the core vocabulary of the course; practice applying it in guided writing assignments; and ultimately prepare for active class participation and success on critical analysis, studio, and museum assignments. The result is greater engagement and greater course success."

Mark Getlein arrived in New York to pursue advanced music studies at the Juilliard School, but he quickly became equally fascinated by the city's vibrant downtown art scene and magnificent museum collections. For a decade or so he led an interesting but precarious life as a pianist and painter. As a writer and development editor, he has helped to create a series of ground-breaking college textbooks in art and literature, including Art History (Abrams, 1995), A History of Art in Africa (Abrams, 2001), The HarperCollins World Reader, The Longman Anthology of British Literature, and The Longman Anthology of World Literature. This is his fourth edition as author of Living with Art.
