Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy regarding the studio arts is based on the primacy of:
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
This the Core Assessment for this course and will be worth 20% of your final grade. Please see the rubric included in your syllabus.
I may have access to stuff you will need.
Gather the materials and equipment you need to work.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: You will be graded on the quality of your work. I will consider creativity (the originality of your ideas), their visual and spacial expression, quantity of work, and craftsmanship (neatness does count in all areas of design). In addition, your growth and development during the course of the semester will be taken into account.
2. Completed assigned projects, signed and ready for critique at the specified times.
3. Participation in and contribution to the group class critiques.
4. Individual Mid-Term and Final Portfolios and Critiques.
During Mid-Term and Finals Weeks I will meet with each of you individually to review your
preceding finished projects and to re-evaluate your progress. These meetings will last about 15
minutes each. At these two critiques all of your preceding assignments will be re-submitted.
This means that after the original project critique you may rework a project to improve
it and its grade.
PARTICIPATION IN MID-TERM AND FINAL CRITIQUES IS MANDATORY.
Mid-Term Critiques: Monday Oct. 4 and Wednesday Oct. 6 during our regular class time.
Final Critiques: TBA, during our scheduled "Final Exam" times during the week of Dec. 6-10.
Grading: Each assignment/project will be critiqued by the entire class on the assigned due date and each project will receive a grade. Individual, private critiques will be scheduled at mid-term and at finals for each student. At that time the work from the preceding weeks will be re-critiqued. So it is possible to re-work any of the projects for this second critique for an improved grade.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Assignments are due for group critique on the specified dates/times. When you or your work are not present for critique, you are letting your classmates down. Late work will be accepted within one week of the original due date but will automatically be lowered one letter grade.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Studio space and storage: Our class will use the large work tables which we will be sharing this semester with a drawing class. Therefore, you must leave your space clean and clear at the end of class. We have limited storage. There are a few large lockers in the back hall and stairwell. There are a dozen metal cabinet/drawer lockers in the main studio. Two students should share each one. They can be locked. Put your names and “Fall 2010” on the locker you claim.
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: The first half of the semester will be devoted to a series of quick projects and their group critiques. Each will usually require about a week to complete. These will be "re-critiqued" at your individual mid-term critique with me.
The second half of the semester will focus on approximately three more ambitious projects: the core assessment project ("The Reliquary"), a communal project and a third project to be announced.
Dates will be specified on each assignment sheet.
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. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93The above are Park's official policies regarding academic honesty and plagiarism. Honesty in the studio is seldom an issue. Of course, you must not turn in any work which you did not do. The consequences are severe and can include failure of the course and other disciplinary action by the University.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96MY ATTENDANCE POLICY: of the 29 class sessions scheduled for this course you will be allowed three (3) cuts (over 10%) without penalty. I do not attempt to differentiate between good reasons and bad for your not being here. Stuff does happen. If you are not here, you are absent. With a fourth absence your final grade will be lowered one full letter grade. Exceptions to this policy will only be negotiable in extreme circumstances (family deaths, hospitalizations, etc.)
ATHLETES: Please provide me with a list of the specific class session dates which you anticipate needing to miss due to games, signed by your coach, by the second week of the semester (Aug. 23). With this information we can attempt to make arrangements to compensate you for missed class time in excess of the three allowed cuts.
Providing me with these dates is mandatory and your responsibility to provide.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
