Aesthetics – literally “the science of the sense perception” – is the study of the messages to the senses, the media that convey them, and the artistic “massages” of the senses, involving beauty, taste and judgement. With lectures, hands-on activities and out-of-class lessons the course is a journey through the languages of the arts as communication skills for the 21st century.
