Dan’s Additional Student Outcomes:
· Better understand the role of appropriate forms of graphic communication at all phases of the design process.
· Develop habits of regular drawing practice so that drawing becomes seeing.
· Build on existing skill sets from previous art and interior design courses.
· Organize work and time, taking individual responsibility for achieving student outcomes.
· The final outcome of this class is to overcome the greatest obstacle in drawing: FEAR
There are no: tests, make-up work, or term papers. As in any class, it is advisable to save your work for proof of grade as well as future reference; especially in this class, as “process work” will be featured in the final project.
Participation and evidence of project development in studio is required. Work cannot miraculously appear on the due date without some evidence that it was done by your hand: seeing it in class.
will be done on a 12-point scale: A+=12, A=11, A-=10, B+=9, B=8, B-=7, etc.
A = Excellent, Remarkable, Exceeds Potential; B = Very Good, High Quality, Promising
C = Passable, Developing Skills, Meets Minimum Expectations; D = Insufficient, Lacking, Poor
· Two categories of work will be evaluated and an average grade calculated for each category: 1) projects, 2) color drawing and perspective drawing exercises.
· The average grade for all assignments in each category will be weighted using the following scale to calculate the final grade for the course:
Project 1 – Interior Design/Perspective: 40%
Project 2 – Portfolio: 40%
Extra Credit: sketchbook– MAX. .3 added to final score.
(for example: a final score of 9.7/B+ with .3 added for sketchbook = 10.0/A-)
· Major project assignments may be due for substantial completion prior to the day they are critiqued in class. This is so that you may benefit from preliminary feedback and have a chance to improve your work before the final submission. In this situation, work must show substantial completion, indicating that the student has satisfied the project requirements, aside from some final details. This is not permission for “sandbagging” (I’ll explain).
· Some homework assignments will be done on loose sheets. Place these in a folder with your name on it and turn them in at the beginning of class on the day they are due.
· I will attempt to inform you of what materials you need each week, but I cannot anticipate everything you may require. Make a reasonable effort to anticipate your needs. Plan ahead.
· The reading material will help develop evaluation criteria for drawing assignments. Students are expected to thoroughly read – and continue to review – reading assignment prior to class.
· Bring the Doyle Color Drawing book to class every day. It’s an invaluable resource.
· You are responsible for the completeness and content of your work. Completed assignments should be your best work, neat and as accurate as possible. Completed work should be free of obvious errors and demonstrate mastery of the concepts covered. Strive for perfection.
· Active participation in class and during critiques (listening, paying attention, contributing if you have something that should be expressed) is required to pass this class.
· RESPONSIVENESS: Please let me know if you have difficulty understanding an assignment. If you have specific concerns with the expectations of the class, your work, or the method of instruction, bring them to my attention. I will do my best to make sure you understand the requirements of the class.
· I expect students to take advantage of my office hours to cover personal issues relating to the course. If you have questions about how you are doing in class, make an appointment to talk with me. Please don’t use class time or the time immediately before or after class.
ME: I suffer from an “invisible” disability: hearing loss. Please speak slowly and clearly, projecting you voice to the front of the class. When you have something to say, please raise your hand so that I can see who is talking, and try to keep conversations to one person at a time.
YOU: If you require accommodation based on a documented disability, emergency medical information to share, or need special arrangements in case of emergency evacuation, please make an appointment with me as soon as possible.
