AR 101-Introduction to Art

Course title and number: Introduction to Art/AR 101

Division:
Education Division

Initiator:
Karen Simion

Date initiated: March 2014

Suggested revision(s) and justification(s) for each:
•   The course description was changed because exposure to different genres and styles of art are now included in the course. Before, the course consisted of only elements and principles of art. The author reviewed introductory art course outlines at other colleges for consistency in
content.
•    General student learning outcomes were written to reflect art elements, art principles, exposure to art styles, and synthesis of what was learned in the class.
•    Specific student learning outcomes were written to provide the detail of each area along with appropriate assessment strategies and criteria for success on student learning outcome.
•    Materials were added so students could explore different mediums. The course is introduction to art, not introduction to drawing.
•    Reference materials were updated.

Summary of consultation within the division:
Course outline was reviewed by previous and current part time art instructors - Joey Oducado,
Rafael Pulmano, Christine Madison, and Mary Sigrah in Kosrae. Christine helped with the initial draft of the revised outline.
Joey and Rafael commented on the content of the revised outline. Neither suggested any
changes.

Summary of consultation with other campuses where this course is taught:
Mary Sigrah is currently teaching art in Kosrae. She has a master's of fine arts in art history with multiple courses in drawing and painting. She was provided both the old outline as well as the revised outline. Ms. Sigrah felt the revised outline was an improvement.
