All Classes General Information 2008-2011

Marciano Martinez

All Classes

Classroom Objectives

The most important factors in my art classes are participation and attendance, due to the nature of the courses

Grading will be based on completion of the daily classroom assignments

Outside of classroom:

  • Maintain a notebook with handouts and notes from lectures
  • Build a portfolio to be reviewed at the end of term so individual progress and growth can be seen and assessed, emphasizing the learning process and final results, including instructor generated assignments from various media (films, books, masterworks)
  • Go to a museum and two galleries to observe various artists’ work in person
  • Opportunity to Participate in the Annual Student Art Show at the Fullerton College Gallery
  • Participate in the Annual “Artist in Residence” program

Note: Please expect to bring materials to first class. Lockers available from the office for your convenience, small fee, need lock

Turn Off Cell Phones during class
