Textbook: There is no text book for this course.
I highly recommend this short book, David Bayles and Ted Orland's, Art and Fear. They discuss the biggest difficulty young fine artists have, which is self-motivation and continuing to be productive after graduation. Please buy this book for yourself.
The following are some of the books available on the market that are good resources for developing artists:
Lang, Taking the Leap: Building a Career as a Visual Artist.
Michels, How to Survive and Prosper as a Artist.
Talbot, The Artist's Marketing and Action Plan.
Barnes, How to Get Hung: a Paractical Guide for Emerging Artists.
Gulrich, 187 Tips for Artists: How to Create a Successful Art Career.
Caplin, The Business of Art.
Grant, The Business of Being an Artist.
Vitali, The Fine Artists' Guide to Marketing and Self-Promotion:
Innovative Techniques to Build Your Career as an Artist.

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.
1. Participation. This includes helping to set the agenda of the seminar, attendance at
the class meetings set by the group, and contribution of critique, ideas and
mutual assistance as agreed.
2. Completion of three written assignments as detailed in the attachments.
3. Fulfilling the portfolio and exhibition
requirements. See attachments.
4. Take the Art History Program Assessment Exam, which will be individually
scheduled after midterm. This exam
attempts to determine how much of the basic content of AR115, AR215, AR216
& AR316 (vocabulary, concepts, major art works and artists) you as a graduating
senior have learned. It will
not affect your academic standing in any way but will
be used to help assess and improve the art history curriculum. This “exam” is proctored but not timed.
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: _ TBA. Initial meeting to set up our meeting times, calendar and make plans for the semester.
