Educational Philosophy: My goal, as an instructor, is to allow my
students to be successful not only in the classroom, but in the "real
world." I want to help facilitate the aquisition of life-long learning
skills, prepare them to function effectively in an information economy,
and develop problem solving skills. To do this, I feel that besides
being a guide in an academic situation, I must also be a mentor, a
coach, and must model behavior consistent with my goals. Students are
faced with so many choices and with so much information, they need an
instructor who will help them concentrate on the "task at hand." I feel
that I help them accomplish this by giving them projects that are what I
call, "step oriented." Each step must build on the last until a
successful piece, according to the objectives is accomplished. Learning
the steps is one aspect, however doing each step with a hands-on
approach assures that the objective will be reached.

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:
Critiques which are group discussions about assignments and are
standard part of professional art education. These critiques will be accomplished
at mid-term and final week.
· Completion of the core assessment project
· Presentation of a final portfolio with completed projects, handouts, notes
· Completion of a research paper reflecting 10%of final grade
· Completion of one field trip with a 2 page reflection paper
· Completion of sketch book assignments
Each project will be assessed according to the handout with a total of 10 points possible each
Late Submission of Course Materials: While in the "real world" there WILL be deadlines
that the student must adhere to, while they are learning, I feel that
while there should be deadlines, the presentation of the work is more
important. If the student has worked on the project to his/her
capability in every class and needs more time, so be it. However, that
does not mean that the deadlines will not be recognized and assigned.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Respect each other’s workspace. We are not the only ones to use this
classroom, it is important to keep it neat and clean
Be sure to remove palettes, coffee cups or brushes that are soaking in the sink. Scrape paint into the trash
The principal hazard is the use of x-acto knives. Please use a STEEL RULER WHEN WORKING WITH AN X-ACTO KNIFE
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: all assignments will be in the form of a handout, which means you will have to keep the handout and be able to refer to it. For this reason, I have included in the class supply list a folder to keep all the papers that I give you. Also for this reason, I will expect you to bring the folder to class or keep it in the room for reference. You are responsible for being able to reference your handout.
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93

MY ATTENDANCE POLICY
I will follow the university criteria for attendance except in the following situations:
If I feel you have just “not come to class” or you have excess absences even-
though you have emailed me at firstname.lastname@example.org I reserve the right to take
action which will include grade-drop, student drop or additional work.
My suggestion is that you do not violate my policy

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.
