Assignments, Tests, Quizzes and Final Exam Schedule, with percentage/points of grade: METHODS OF INSTRUCTION Fundamental Techniques During class, we will discuss the fundamental techniques as listed in the course objectives. Demonstrations will be followed by in-class work time where you will complete exercises using the demonstrated technique(s). Power Point Lectures Instructional images and examples from Art History will provide a broad array of images that will amplify and enhance student understanding of given objectives. It is important to have a substantial knowledge of imagery to create personal work with greater depth and vision. Class Critique After we have completed our projects, the class will gather to discuss our work. By looking and talking about our work and the way in which others perceive it, we will come to understand the essentials of visual communication. METHODS OF EVALUATION Template Date – July 2013 2
    • Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses Homework Homework consists of practice assignments that you will execute at home. Practice is essential to developing your skills and you will find that progress is difficult without it. Projects You will be expected to complete a specific project in regards to each lecture topic and completion of this stated assignment will be the source of points which will determine your grade. PROJECT CALENDAR/ COURSE CONTENT Notes on the Assignments From the onset of the class the students will be involved in problem solving assignments. Each project presents problems that must be evaluated, analyzed, and solved. Each project leads into the next and provides for a synthesis of knowledge and overall comprehension of the painting medium. An example of this critical thinking in class is shown by the student's ability to: A. Create and design a painting using the visual vocabulary. B. Evaluate the finishing painting. C. Apply the knowledge gained in class in analyzing other paintings. D. Look at painting more critically through application and evaluation., Projects are not necessarily given in this sequence: 1. Techniques for canvas/panel application Students learn basic surface preparation techniques for painting on illustration board, masonite, and stretched canvas. Special attention given to gesso/ sizing agents and discussion of variable surface qualities and their affect on paint application. DATE: tba 2. Introduction of Color Theories and Techniques for Mixing Color Using acrylic paints, students create color wheels and value charts as well as cross-mixing experiments with compliments and triads. Various color mixing techniques are discussed, the role of saturation, tinting, shading, and simultaneous color contrast. Glazing is also discussed, and paint extending, drying retardants and palette storage/ brush care is explained. DATE: tba 3. Color Mixing/ Grid Method project Using a photograph that has been traced/ transferred to an illustration board, students fill in broad simple areas using a pre-determined palette. The goal of this project is to demonstrate an ability to correctly mix color and reproduce given palettes as accurately as possible. DATE :tba 4. The Still Life Working first with monochromatic palettes, students will build their skills to include complex color situations and ways to approach simple still life compositions. The role of reflected light, local color, and various chromatic values will be discussed with regards to achieving a volumetric and mimetic representation. Various paint application methods will be explored. Template Date – July 2013 3
    • Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses DATE:Ttba 5. The Landscape Landscape will be approached from various angles including plein-air and photorealistic methods. Special attention will be given to spatial illusionism and compositional awareness. Color mixing with regards to mood, light, and atmosphere is and important consideration, as well as thinking about how shapes and colors may appear to move forward or recede into pictorial space. DATE:tba 6. The self-portrait The self-portrait project is an opportunity to consider the ability of painting to reflect inner states of mind-in this regard considerations such as pose, lighting, color theory, and allegorical/metaphorical content become important. It's equally important to work towards convincing human representations and working from life in order to understand the complex and subtle relationships and characteristics of human proportion and anatomy. DATE:tba 7. Abstraction/Expressionism/Decollage Students are given an opportunity to explore nonrepresentational or collage techniques. Although variety and dynamic compositional energy will be emphasized, there will need to be unifying agents that prevent the painting from falling into chaos. In this project, special attention to paint application and it's emotive potential will be emphasized, as well as the importance of color and surface. DATE: tba 8. The interior scene The interior scene is an opportunity to integrate architectural ideas with still-life and/or human representation. Light becomes important, as well as textural variants such as reflection and transparency. A convincing spatial representation and a feeling of "place" are key elements to this assignment. DATE: tba 9. Old Master copy and Interpretation An Old Master painting will be selected from the cannon of art history and analyzed formally. A reproduction will be made using the "grid" method, and the artist will additionally interpret the piece from a contemporary perspective by adding/altering picture elements. DATE: tba 10. Museum Project Writing Assignment With the application of class knowledge, the student will visit a local fine arts gallery, select a painting, and write a critical analysis of the work. Making the paper relevant to class assignments, the painting will be analyzed and evaluated in terms of subject matter, historical period represented, method of paint application, integration of formal considerations (color, texture, line, value, shape, composition) and readability of its conceptual framework. DATE: tba GRADING PROCEDURES Template Date – July 2013 4
    • Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses Each assignment will have a specific set of stated objectives that must be fulfilled upon completion. Three primary factors determine the grade on any given project: C-P-O=Concept/Professionalism/Originality 1.Concept: Were the stated objectives of the project realized? Did the student utilize design elements and principles to create cohesive and unified composition? Did the student demonstrate an ability to understand the conceptual requirements of each assigned project and a willingness/ability to adhere to standard guidelines? 2. Professionalism: Did the student use assigned materials/techniques to best advantage? Was the project finished completely and thoroughly in the time given? Did the student demonstrate sufficient technical skill to produce finished presentations in keeping with professional industry and gallery standards? 3. Originality: Are the designs innovative and original, or simply rote copies of the examples given? Did the student demonstrate an ability to compose design elements with a sufficient degree of originality and creativity? GRADING SCALE A=90-100 B=80-89 C=70-79 D=60-69 F=59 and below A: work of outstanding quality indicating a full, as well as a successful resolution. Moreover, this work challenges and even transcends the limits of the problem(s) and learning objectives as defined. "A" work is not merely competent, it is daring. B: work exhibiting insight into and understanding of objectives and the ideas expressed, but without a full and/or polished resolution of them. C: work gives evidence of only partial understanding and/or exhibits very little refinement. D: work showing almost no understanding or evidence of an effort to try to understand given objectives. F: work that appears mindless (without direction, understanding and/or any evidence of caring). Late Work Policy: Work handed in a 1-6 days late -10%. (including e-mails the day of). Work handed in 7-13 days late -20%. Work handed in 14-20 days late -30%. Work handed in 21-27 days late -40% PLEASE COMPLETE ALL GIVEN ASSIGNMENTS Failure to complete an assignment will result in a 0 grade being given, which is far worse than an F of 59%. It is much preferred to hand in projects late than to not hand them in at all. NO WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER OUR FINAL CLASS MEETING, NO EXCEPTIONS! Template Date – July 2013 5
