Class Information A beginning college course in painting allows experimentation in acrylics and gouache. Projects are designed to provide experience in mixing colors, selection and application to surfaces of various types. Exercises are assigned which expand the thinking of the student as relates to the possibilities of creativity through the paint media. Supply purchase required. Academic Dishonesty Policy and Penalty for Violation: Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Any student who commits academic dishonesty will receive a grade of zero for the assignment or test. A second instance of cheating will culminate in a student being given an F or failure for the class. Instructors may also pursue disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Handbook. Academic dishonesty includes the following actions, as well as other similar conduct aimed at making false representation with respect to the student’s academic performance: (1)cheating on an exam, (2)collaborating with others on work to be presented, if contrary to the stated rules of the course, (3)submitting, if contrary to the rules of the course, work previously submitted in another course, knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above actions, including assistance in an arrangement whereby work, classroom performance, examination, or other activity is submitted or performed by a person other than the student under whose name the work is submitted or performed Academic dishonesty includes the following actions, as well as other similar conduct aimed at making false representation with respect to the student’s academic performance: (4)cheating on an exam, (5)collaborating with others on work to be presented, if contrary to the stated rules of the course, (6)submitting, if contrary to the rules of the course, work previously submitted in another course, (7)knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above actions, including assistance in an arrangement whereby work, classroom performance, examination, or other activity is submitted or performed by a person other that the student under whose name the work is submitted or performed, (8)plagiarism. Please refer to the Palm Beach Community College Student Handbook for further information. . 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.
  4. 4. Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses Template Date – July 2013 4 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 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.

  5. 5. Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses Template Date – July 2013 5 Sources Color Inventories Color Analysis Free Studies H. COLOR AND PSYCHOLGY Color: Symbol or Analogue GRADING PROCEDURES 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). 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.
  6. 6. Palm Beach State College Course Syllabus – Classroom Courses Template Date – July 2013 6 NO WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER OUR FINAL CLASS MEETING, NO EXCEPTIONS! Most assignments are worth 100 POINTS. To determine your final grade, I add all the points you have earned and then divide this number by the total number of points possible. Grading: Letter Grade Points Percentage (if applicable) A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F below 59 P N S U Class Policies Attendance: Professors are required to take attendance. 1. Attendance will be taken in each and every class. 2. Absences are usually detrimental to a student’s grade. 3. “Incomplete” grades are assigned only in cases where severe illness or emergency has prevented the student’s being present at the final examination. 4. Late arrivals or early departures count as 1/3 of an absence. Early departures in excess of 30min will be counted as unexcused absences.5. Excused absences due to extenuating circumstances or family emergencies must be verified. An e-mail the day of/before your absence explaining your circumstances is usually sufficient. 6. More than 3 unexcused absences will result in a failing (F) grade. For example, this means that even 3 unexcused absences and 1 tardy will result in a failing grade. 7. Family and personal vacations DO NOT COUNT AS EXCUSED ABSENCES. I will NOT administer make-up tests for these absences. 8. STUDENTS WHO DO NOT ATTEND THE FIRST CLASS THEY ARE ENROLLED IN WILL BE DROPPED FROM THE COURSE. Unless they have proof of extenuating circumstances and/or call or e-mail me prior to the class meeting. 9. Our final class meeting, is…..our FINAL CLASS MEETING, and no work will be accepted afterwards. Ever. No matter what the circumstances* (*unless you have arranged for an “incomplete” grade) Electronic Device Use and Email Policy: Cell-phones, laptops, electronic devices, must be turned off during class time NO TEXTING !!!!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!! Late Assignment Policy:
