Class Assessment: At each class students will be assigned to see one or more art exhibitions and write a short paper on their observation for the following week. The next week you will read each other's papers and the discourse the exhibitions.
Grading: There is no final exam, no textbook. Some art reviews in newspapers are required. Attendance is crucial.
8 weeks exhibitions and paper = A
7 weeks exhibitions and paper = B
6 weeks exhibitions and paper = C
5 weeks exhibitions and paper = D
4 weeks exhibitions and paper = F
Papers showing little effort to understand the exhibition will not be accepted.
Although we highly discourage missing a class, you may make up 2 of the week's work by attending the gallery on your own time and submitting a paper the next week. Third missed class will lower your grade one grade.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Late papers need to be turned within two weeks of the class viewing the exhibition. Note: We may be viewing a exhibition the last day it is up at which time a different show or gallery will be assigned to write a paper.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: First class we will form car pools to attend the exhibitions.
