The Internet is rapidly becoming the place to do business, and now colleges are online.

Eastern Washington University’s art department will offer art courses online this winter and next spring.

Gallery Visits (Art 396), a two-credit class, will be offered winter quarter. Via the Web, students will visit virtual art museums, galleries and artists’ studios.

Art in the Humanities (Art 213), a five-credit class offered next spring, will explore the formal elements of visual arts and an overview of historical art periods.

Both classes will be taught by Richard Twedt, chairman of EWU’s art department. For more information, call 359-7070 or visit the art department’s web site at
