Slide 4:

Slide 5: 

Disclaimer: Because of the nature of art history, students will be presented with material and images that they may find questionable and/or morally and politically offensive.

Slide 6: 

About the Class: *Let me say this & be perfectly clear about it from the beginning: this is NOT an “Easy A” class. You are going to have to work A LOT to get through the semester. NO DRAWING REQUIREMENTS!!!

Slide 7: 

About the Class continued….. *You will spend most of your time in this class reading. All your lessons will be presented in PowerPoint with loads of information & images. Your lessons/weeks are, in order of presentation:

Slide 8: 

*You no do not have a text book for this class but the Mesa State Library does have numerous copies of general survey Art History books that will help you if you feel you are missing something in your reading/notes. The titles I would personally recommend are: Kleiner, Fred S. and Mamiya, Christin J., Gardner’s Art through the Ages, Thomson/Wadsworth (Belmont. CA) or Janson, H.W., History of Art, Abrams and Prentice Hall (New York and Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey). *Any version of either book is acceptable* About the Class continued…..

Slide 9: 

Study Hints: STAY ON TRACK WITH THE CALENDAR & BE PREPARED TO READ, A LOT!!! *The very nature of this class will test you! As there is no in-class component, all the work is on you. You will need to stay on top of the lessons & follow the course outline; this is really the only chance you have of successfully getting through this course. *You will also want to familiarize yourself with the images & the information associated with each image from the beginning. I can assure you, if you wait until the last minute to study you will not pass this class. There is simply too much information to process in a short amount of time. Many students find making flashcards to be immensely helpful! *I realize, no matter how many times you read this or I say it, someone is still going to find themselves in trouble. Don’t be that person!! I encourage you to look at the course outline & calendar NOW & compare those items to your overall course load/schedule for the semester. If the work load is going to be too much, drop my class immediately. I expect my students to work as hard as I do and that bar is set VERY high. *If, at any time you are struggling with my course, you need to contact me right then. I can’t help you if I don’t know there is a problem & I certainly won’t help you if you wait until the end of the semester to try & do something about your bad grade. I realize this sounds extremely harsh, but it is coming from experience. Introduce yourself to me quick so I know who & what I am dealing with. Here’s a hint: professors are more likely to help a student they know & one who is willing to help him(her)self!!! I’m that professor!

Slide 10: 

The Workload: *You will have a variety of things to do in this class: *Artist Biography Assignments: I have many students who like to complete all of these assignments within the first few weeks of class, before their schedule gets too full. You can turn any of these assignments in early but never late. *Slide Identification quizzes: this is all about visual recall; you will be shown an image & asked to provide very specific information concerning that image. *Exams: This is where I find out how much work you have or have not been doing. The exams will cover any & all information in your weekly lessons. I have pulled questions DIRECTLY from the lessons. I will not try to trick you or confuse you; my exams are very straight forward & students who have done their part will be successful.

Slide 11: 

Concerning your slide identification quizzes & exams: -the information you need to successfully complete each of these is available to you from the first day of class! Some information is in the form of Word Documents & all else is in the weekly PowerPoint lessons. -each testing opportunity will be timed; any answers submitted once the time has expired will not be accepted. This is to help ensure that you come to these events prepared & not with a pile of notes that you can look through while taking a quiz/exam. I would recommend setting a timer so you do not accidently run out of time -You will only be allowed one shot at each answer and once your answer is submitted, you cannot go back. Once again, this is to help ensure that you come to these events prepared & not with a pile of notes that you can look through while taking a quiz/exam. -Your quizzes/exams will be available on the scheduled date for 12 hours only from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. If you miss this window of opportunity, you miss the points. **STOP!!! Go back & read this again & again so there is no confusion**

Slide 12: 

And now……. *All of the information covered in this PowerPoint can also be found in your syllabus. Some of the areas are even covered more extensively in your syllabus than in this introduction. Print it now & read it!! *I want you to have a wonderful semester & know that you can contact me with questions and/or concerns. I try not to be a heinous individual  I am fairly easy to get along with but I do have a few things that piss me off…..missing deadlines is the big one for this class! *I will also expect to receive an email from EVERY one of you within the first week of class. Your deadline to do this is Friday, January 22, 2010. I simply want you to introduce yourself and ask any questions that you may have at this point. If you have any concerns or questions, let’s address them now rather than later when it might be too late. If you don’t have questions, just introduce yourself & then go about your day! Also be sure to provide me with the email address you actually check on a regular basis; this is just in case I need to contact you for any reason during the semester. Many of you I already know & have actually met – welcome back you guys & wow, you must be a glutton for punishment  For those of you I don’t know, email is the only way I will get to know you, so introduce yourself. When I receive your email there’s 5 bonus points added to your semester total……see, not heinous 
