Ever since he can recall his self, he has had a very strong inclination to academia and the aspiration of imparting his knowledge, his enthusiasm, and his passion to others who want to not only achieve great results but also embark on the wondrous adventure of discovering the wonders of art and language. He relishes the opportunity to tutor individuals who want to strive towards those goals in Art History, English and Greek.

AP Art History - Content Area 2: Ancient Mediterranean 3,500-300 B.C.E.

This unit makes up about 15% of the average AP exam, and it includes 36 works of art. It covers primarily Greece, Rome, Carthage, Crete, and the other ancient art-producing cultures on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.


Artistic traditions of the ancient Near East and dynastic Egypt focused on representing royal figures and divinities and on the function of funerary and palatial complexes within their cultural contexts. Works of art illustrate the active exchange of ideas and reception of artistic styles among the Mediterranean cultures and the subsequent influence on the classical world.
