From the Publisher:

Designed for students who have little or no knowledge of the arts, this well-illustrated, basic handbook of terms and concepts provides a unique introduction to aesthetic perception -- what to look and listen for in works of visual art, music, theatre, dance, film, landscape architecture, architecture, and literature. It shows them how to build on cognitive/perceptual skills they already have to develop discriminating artistic perception for approaching, analyzing, and evaluating works of art -- and to think critically about how their relationship with the arts might enrich their quality of life.
