concepts of seeing and appreciating art.
Art of Seeing" 6th edition, by Paul Zelanski and Mary Pat Fisher,
published by Prentice Hall.
Available at the Gavilan College Bookstore , you can also order this book online.
|Details about your online class:||
This class is completely online. You will never have to come to class, although you may come to the
Gavilan College Library
and get help from the reference librarian. You can be in class at any time of the day or night, from any Internet connection you have available: your own, your friend's, or your local public library.
However, this does not mean that you will be able to move through the class at your own speed. A major part of the class involves class participation, discussing assignments and problems with your classmates. This means that everyone needs to be doing the same assignments at approximately the same time. Check assignments and schedule for specific due dates.
This also does not mean that your instructor lives on the computer and will answer all your questions within 20 minutes. Remember, in a traditional classroom, you had to wait until the next class meeting to get answers. The first week I check in every day. The remaining weeks I will check in Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

A Few Netiquette Tips:
- Avoid writing e-mail messages or replying in forums using all caps. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING!
- Remember that anything you
write in a forum or type into a message is a public comment. You never
know who's reading it, or who may copy it or spread it around.
- What is flaming? Sometimes you might offend someone unintentionally. This might result in an angry message. This is called being flamed. Flaming is not allowed! Do not attack back, you will spark a flame war. Forward the message to me.
- Behave as if you are face to face in a real classroom. Use common sense and common courtesy.
