Educational Philosophy: I believe that it is through intensive studio practice that students learn to generate visual ideas, to express them skillfully and to critically evaluate their results. The ideal environment for that studio practice is an energetic, competitive visual milieu that is intellectually as well as physically demanding. Art and design are labor intensive and cumulative. I engage each student in an ongoing discussion about their ideas and their work. Through each project, and through successive semesters, I try to provide the stimulus and support that will help build each individual student's skill, confidence and portfolio.
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.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Grading: Attendance and participation: 10%
Late Submission of Course Materials: Assignments are due for group critique on the specified dates and 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 regulations:
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: The series of projects we will do will explore the elements of art and the principles of design. These will include problems of line and shape, positive and negative space, the illusion of depth, the illusion of motion, repetition structures, gradation, transformation, tessellation, visual texture and pattern.
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 92-93Academic honesty and plagiarism as defined in Park's policies above are seldom issues in art. Of course you must not turn in work which you did not do or visual ideas which you did not originate, the consequences are severe.
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 95-96The above is Park's official attendance policy. Mine is as follows: Forty-two 1 hour and 50 minute studio sessions are scheduled for this semester. Of these you may have up to four (4) cuts without penalty, that is nearly 10% of the classes. A fifth cut will directly impact your grade. You will be held responsible for material covered in your absence.
Athletes: By the second week of class I will need a list of the specific class sessions you anticipate needing to cut due to away games, signed by your coach. With this information we can try to compensate you for the missed class time. Providing this information is mandatory.
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 .
