The most important factors in my art classes are Participation in class, Completion of daily exercises and assignments, and Personal Progress

Important Assignments:

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
