ART 2302: This is a history and appreciation of the visual arts from the
1600's through the present day. Aesthetic and historical perspectives will be
used, and critical thinking activities addressed, to enable students to
understand and communicate their knowledge of the art surveyed. Keep in mind that this is an intensive,
summer version of the course, as we cover in fewer than 10 weeks what normally
takes 16 weeks during regular semesters.
It’s not an easy course at all…

ADDITIONAL COURSE RESOURCES:
laptop computers are an essential resource for you in this class. Most
important, to help you succeed, I have placed numerous study slide images onto
the Web. These study slides used to be available only in carousels in the
library, but you may now view them 24 hours a day, from anywhere that you can
access the internet. By clicking onto my hyperlink above, under the
"Course Outline" section, or from my homepage, you will access a list
of all periods of art history; when you then click onto the period you wish to study,
you will be taken directly to a page of thumbnail-size slide images, each with
basic identification information. If you wish, you may then click onto the
small images to view larger versions. This incredible resource has been used
with great success by my art history students; most always print all of the
thumbnail pages out, for additional study help.
You should be sure to print these thumbnail pages out before each
lecture, so that you have them in front of you as I talk about them; later you
should use them as “flash card” study aids.
DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE BEFORE THE FIRST TEST TO ACCESS THE STUDY
SLIDES AND PRINT UP THE THUMBNAIL PAGES. THAT WOULD BE
A BIG MISTAKE. If you wait till the last minute and have trouble getting on or
can't access the study slides because you waited till the last minute, that
be considered any kind of excuse. Sooooo...DON'T WAIT
PAST THIS WEEK.
(Tip: In the past, people who have NOT bothered to use the study slides have
NOT generally done very well on tests.)
are an essential resource for you in other ways, as well. As
you can see from my homepage, I have created several hyperlinked resources for
you, which may be visited by simply "clicking" onto the blue titles.
These include virtual museum tours, links to the great masterpieces and
information about them, as well as numerous other art history resource sites.
Also, you may access Gallileo for its myriad links
from my homepage.
Of course, the library contains many other essential resources, such as
books and periodicals, not to mention many videotapes and other resources which
I will be putting on reserve for you.
*NOTE: I WILL ALSO POST YOUR GRADES AS WE GO ALONG ON THE GEORGIA VIEW
GRADEBOOK WEBSITE. FOR YOUR BENEFIT, I WILL SET UP A GA View GRADE BOOK
FOR YOU. WITH THIS, YOU CAN LOOK UP YOUR GRADES ONLINE, BEFORE I PASS
THEM BACK IN CLASS. TO GET THERE, GO TO https://clayton.view.usg.edu/.
ONCE YOU REACH THAT SITE, JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR LOGGING IN. IF
YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE, PLEASE CALL (OR VISIT) THE HUB FOR HELP.
HOW DO YOU STUDY FOR THIS COURSE?
I’m glad you asked. First, this is NOT an easy course; you must study hard
to succeed, ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS IS AN INTENSIVE SUMMER SESSION.
1. The exams will be based on the course lectures, the textbook assignments,
and the Web Study Slides, as well as any class videotapes, slides or other
activities in class. If I should lecture on a certain art work, and you find that
work illustrated in the book or on your thumbnail study slide pages, then it
would be smart to put a "star" next to that illustration, because it
is more likely than others to be on the exam.
2. Besides the book illustrations, which may also be on the exam, all the
other important slide images are now available for you to view on the Web, as I
explained above. The hyperlink to these study slides is within the Course
Outline section above, if you are reading this on-line, or from my homepage.
These Study Slide Images will be very important to you for your review and
preparation for tests within the course.
You will need to print these out before they are lectured on, so you can
use them to help you during the lectures and use them later as flash cards for
review before the exams.
3. IMPORTANT! Please note the hyperlinks already active on my homepage that
allow you immediate access to excellent art history research sources, as well
as virtual museum tours, images of art works and other helpful resources. Just "click" on them.
4. If you have any questions or thoughts to share, please do feel free to
come to my office (Arts & Sciences-105-H) during my office hours, or call
me at 678/466-4719.
HARD CORE STUFF:
A. ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION GRADES:
In an art history or appreciation course, attendance is very important.
This will count for half of your attendance/participation grade, which is 5% of
your course grade. In this regard,
absences are unexcused unless supported by hard-copy documentation that I
determine is justifiable. If any
students are late to class, it is their responsibility to tell me at the end of
THAT class period that they did show up, for attendance purposes. Frequent
tardiness and leaving early will also factor in. Three significant latenesses (after roll) will count as an absence. The participation
portion of the grade will reflect your individual, active, and positive
participation in the class discussions, in your adding positively to the
learning experience through relevant questions and comments. Also, the
participation part of it can be no higher than the attendance part, since if
one is not in class, he or she is not participating. In
this regard also, no active cell phones or pagers are allowed in class. They
MUST be turned off. Therefore, EACH time one of those goes off in class, 10% of
that person's Participation grade will be deducted from the final grade.
B. If you know that you are getting married or some such thing, talk to me
in advance so that you will not get behind. If you have the dreaded Cat Scratch
Virus, give me a call at CCSU so that I can tell you what you missed; YOU ARE,
OF COURSE, RESPONSIBLE FOR FINDING OUT WHAT YOU MISS AND FOR MAKING UP ANY
ASSIGNMENTS. My office number, again, is
678/466-4719. The office hours when you
can normally reach me will be handed out during the first week of classes.
C. Make-up Tests: Make-up tests will be allowed only in extremely
exceptional cases, with documentable excuses. Also, due to my using up the more
obvious questions on the initial exam, Make-up exams tend to be tough
cookies. If a Make-up test is approved,
supported by hard-copy documentation, in the summer, you must take the Make-up
within two weeks of the original exam.
D. IN ADDITION, WE HAVE BEEN ASKED TO INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING IN OUR SYLLABI:
of the Learning Environment
which disrupts the teaching–learning process during class activities will not
tolerated. While a
variety of behaviors can be disruptive in a classroom setting, more serious examples
include belligerent, abusive, profane, and/or
threatening behavior. A student who fails to respond to reasonable
faculty direction regarding classroom behavior and/or behavior while
participating in classroom activities may be dismissed from class. A
student who is dismissed is entitled to due process and will be afforded such
rights as soon as possible following dismissal. If
found in violation, a student may be administratively withdrawn and may receive
a grade of WF.
detailed description of examples of disruptive behavior and appeal procedures
is provided at:
Please come visit me in my office (A&S-105-H) if you have any questions,
are unsure of anything, or just want to talk about class. That’s what I’m there
for, and...YOU ARE WELCOME!
