MOSAIC and EVALUATION PAPER:
The Mosaic will be a hands-on project to be completed during the
time we study the Byzantine mosaics of the Early Christian era. Subject
matter will be provided and students must select a type of tesserae to
execute the work. The page should be mounted on a stiff backing board
and the tesserae can be attached with glue or similar material. The mosaic
will be due October 15, 2003. The design was derived from this 6th
The Evaluation paper will be a subjective evaluation of a piece
of art. Students should visit the Evansville Museum of Arts and Science
and pick a work to write about. Then, using terminology and insight gained
in the context of the course, write a 750 word evaluation of the formal
and contextual attributes of the work. Additional research may be done
on the artist or content of the work. Non-traditional writing formats
will be accepted with permission of instructor. The mosaic and paper will
be 100 points each and will account for 10% of the final semester grade.
The Evaluation paper is due November 24, 2003.
There will be four examinations during the semester. Each is worth 100 points and is 20% of the final semester grade. Anyone who arrives after the exam has been distributed will not be able to take the exam. Makeup exams and the times that they are to be administered are completely at the discretion of the instructor. There is no guarantee that a makeup will be given. To insure consideration for a makeup exam, contact the instructor within 24 hours before or after the scheduled exam.
10 point quizzes may be given on days when reading assignments are due. Quiz grades will be used to determine final grades when an average falls on a borderline.
