Students earn fine arts course credit by producing and by exhibiting their art.
Credit (i.e. a grade) is earned by...
...using class time productively - about 80 class periods (about 4 hrs. per week or 60 hrs. per semester)...
...and by conventional presentation of the semester's of work at the final exhibition.
Higher grades are earned with a higher quantity and quality of work completed.
The course fee is small, so that art students can provide their own art supplies to work with.
Art supplies and works in progress can be stored in the studio lockers. Large art projects can be stored on the studio shelves.
A locker partner is expected, and a shared combo-lock is recommended (especially during the last few weeks of class).
The instructor facilitates, monitors, assesses and sometimes photographs student productivity in the studio.
Final grades are determined by a combination of peer-, self-, and/or instructor assessments.
Each one of these assignment categories - SKETCHBOOK, ART JOURNAL, PROJECTS and ART EXHIBITION - is worth one quarter (25%) of the final semester grade.
To earn course credit, these four assignment categories' combined average must be 60% or more.
Students cannot earn less than 50% on assignments in these four assignment categories.
(Grades of 50% in these four assignment categores indicate missing assignments.)
