Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
DESCRIPTION of AR 204's CORE ASSESEMENT:
The Core Assessment Project for AR204 is “The Synectic Design Game” a complex project, in a grid format, assigned late in the semester that is worth 20% of the final grade. The objective is to produce the maximum number of new aesthetically strong design motifs by merging a set of dissimilar design motifs while producing a unified visual whole.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Studio Regulations: This is as communal studio and this semester Alumni Hall has very high enrollment in all its studio classes. Therefore the need to respect each other's space, work and equipment will be greater than ever. Do not leave palettes, coffee cups or brushes soaking in the sink. Scrape paint into the trash—not into the sink.
Studio Management: You will have an assigned drawing table that you will not have to share.However, do not leave your artwork or tools out where they can be vulnerable to theft or accidents. Label all your sketch books, tool boxes, rulers, etc. They all look alike.
Studio Storage: You may claim a flat file drawer to share with another 2-D student. Small lockersare available in the sink room and cabinet/drawer lockers are also available. These must also be shared with another student. Please label your storage clearly with “your name and Fall 05”.
Studio Access: You have 24 hour, 7 days per week access to this studio space. You are even welcome to work during other class times. After add/drop your name will be placed on the security list for this building. To get in after the building is locked call security (6444). Please be prepared to show your Park University I.D. and to cooperate with Park security staff at all times.
Studio Safety: Although I do not anticipate their use in this class, all solvents must be kept in the bright yellow fire proof cabinet. Never pour solvents down the drain. Used solvents are to be disposed of in the special red storage can inside the yellow cabinet. Information about the safety of art supplies can be found in the large notebook just outside my office and in the reference book with it. Again, I do not anticipate their use in this course, but using any power tool requires training, goggles AND a buddy!
The principle hazard in a 2-D design class is the danger of cutting oneself with an X-acto knife. ALWAYS USE A STEEL RULER WHEN WORKING WITH AN X-ACTO KNIFE! In the event of an accident use the studio phone to call security (6444) for assistance.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
