Curriculum:   Students will create a variety of 2 and 3-dimensional projects learning the basic fundamental skills and vocabulary of visual art, while making connections to their own art major.     Students will research, plan, revise and reflect in the creation of their work.  Basic drawing and painting skills will be covered in addition to skills for viewing and appreciating a variety of works and styles.  Materials will include book making, clay, paper, and mixed media.   Studio behaviors, including critique skills, preparation, attendance, focus, cooperation, studio maintenance, and attitude are assessed throughout the semester with points tallied as part of the final exam grade.

ACTIVITIES AND ASSIGNMENTS         • Art and craft projects, art viewing and critiquing skills, planning and sketching.

• Expectations are that students will complete all class assignments (on time) especially when they are out of class for activities within their own major.  Students should be open and willing to try new things, even those they do not feel skilled with.
