This course is an introductory course in Art Appreciation. The course is designed to expose students to the world of art including artists, art processes and media, art history, the creative process, and the elements and principles of design. To be successful in this class you must be self-motivated and disciplined. The primary source of information will come from the textbook. I repeat: You will not pass this course unless you buy the textbook and read it diligently. Online you will use the My Arts Lab, which you will have to purchase a code for.

Class begins on January 14 and ends on May 7. We will not have any regular in person typical classroom meeting. There will be five (5) tests in this class. Each test will cover new chapters; there is no cumulative test at the end of the class. You will have a 4 day window to take each examine; Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Each test will have fifty questions, all multi-choice. You will take the test over the Internet. Each test will be sixty minutes long, once you log on you must complete the test in the time frame. If you take longer then sixty minutes that portion of your test will not count. The “My Arts Lab” will give you learning objectives; key concepts and a study plan for each chapter. I will not reschedule a test for you. You have four days to take this exam, day or night 24/7 and you can take it anywhere in the world! Almost any computer that is connected to the Internet will work.
