Margaret Lazzari and Dona Schlesier allows students to view the world through a more artistic perspective in their bestselling textbook, Exploring Art: A Global, Thematic Approach. They make use of art from a wide variety of cultures to explain everyday things like sports, entertainment, food, and even nature, death, and life. This unique approach allows students to view art in a religious, political, societal, cultural, and even sexual context, ultimately helping them appreciate it better. This cutting-edge book is a collaboration of two of the best artistic minds in the field – Margaret Lazzari and Dona Schlesier. Lazarri is a professor and art critic who has authored a good number of textbooks on art and design, including The Practical Handbook for the Emerging Artist and Art and Design Fundamentals. She herself is an accomplished artist whose works have been widely exhibited throughout the country. Schlesier is an art professor at Divine Word College, Iowa. Her drawings and multimedia pieces have been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Exploring Art: A Global, Thematic Approach (with Art CourseMate with eBook Printed Access Card) ISBN 9781111343781 is divided into 2 parts, the first of which offers an introduction to art, its language, media, and meaning. The introductory chapter talks about art as a human phenomenon. The book then discusses the reasons behind the creation of art (from survival to religion), as well as the political and social aspects of art. Unlike other references in this subject, it lets students explore art in the context of religion, from worship to issues of mortality and immortality. Other topics discussed include politics and power, social protest, race and gender, nature, culture, and entertainment and their impact on different artistic expressions.
