Course Overview

1) Facilitating or perpetrating "zoom bombing" will result in immediate referral to the UW Community Standards & Student Conduct team, with possible consequences of receiving an F for the class and expulsion from the University.

2) You must sign in with your UW NetID and password (please bookmark the page) before joining each Zoom meeting. This procedure will prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to class sessions held in Zoom. Everyone in our class must update one's personal profile with a current photo of oneself so that the instructor can see everyone's face during class.

3) Participation in the class is one of the essential requirements for the course. Active involvement in-class critiques, peer reviews, and discussions will reflect the student's understanding of course materials, and receiving feedback from the instructor and classmates will be crucial for every student's learning in the class. When the class is taught remotely, everyone must maintain both audio and video function properly during the entire quarter to facilitate everyone's participation.

4) You are responsible for getting the information and assignments you missed from your classmates. 

5) Within the class time in the classroom, you should not do homework for other classes and turn off all your other electronic devices.

6) Each week and each class, assignments, or parts of assignments, will be due. Expect approximately 10 to 15 hours of homework a week, or 2 hours per weekday outside the class.

7) The instructor only grades assignments supervised by the instructor in the classroom and homework given by the instructor.

8) If the class is taught remotely, you should submit all your assignment work via this course site on CANVAS. Any submission via email to the instructor will not be accepted nor graded.

All work for this class should be approached with a high degree of professionalism. Participation is required for all class sessions. If you miss a class for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact classmates to make up the work. Please make every effort to be on time. Arriving late is seen as a lack of interest and a sign of disrespect for your colleagues. Work that is not ready at the beginning of class will not be critiqued. Late work is heavily discouraged and will not be accepted without prior permission. Grading is based on your work quality during the quarter (both visually and conceptually), on your work process (the extent of exploration and variation throughout each project), and participation in group discussions and critiques.

50% assignment work

Grading criteria
Number grades (4,3,2,1,0) will be given based on your work quality and your performance in the class. Grading considerations include:
1) Completing the requirements, demonstrating control of the media to achieve creative results in content and conceptual growth.
2) Using class time to your best advantage to complete work.
3) Offering constructive criticism of others' work during group critiques.
4) Meeting deadlines.

Examination & Portfolio Presentation
1) There are no specific written exams. The presentation of a portfolio, handing in the final assignment, and the final critique function as the final. During the scheduled final of the course, the instructor will give the final critique. Everyone must attend the scheduled final in person; failure to do so will result in receiving an F for the course. The UW website posts the final's schedule:
2) At the end of the quarter, submit a portfolio of all work and only work for this course. In the portfolio, write your name, course number, and project name on the back of each of your paintings. And Put work in chronological order, from the first project to last.
3) Due date: Complete portfolios are due at the beginning of the quarter's last class. A late portfolio will result in course failure.

There is no specific text for this class; however, there will be books placed on reserve in the library from which individual references will be suggested to students.
