The descriptions and topics of this course change from semester-to-semester, as well as from instructor-to-instructor. Prerequisites: varies with the topic offered. ARTS 490 ART EDUCATION PORTFOLIO. The Art Education Portfolio course is designed for senior Visual Arts Majors who are enrolled in the Teacher Education Certification Program. To enhance postgraduate job placement, the creation of a comprehensive portfolio is the focus. This includes the development of a statement of teaching philosophy, writing the curriculum vitae, the artist's statement, resume, and biography. The course provides an introduction to the K-12 art curriculum, strategies for integrating art and other disciplines, unit and lesson planning, techniques for the assessment of performance, an overview of successive stages of students' visual communication, and professional teaching standards. Interactive workshops include micro teaching, interviews, choosing appropriate technology, and exhibition of the comprehensive portfolio of personal and student work. ARTS 490 THE DARK SPACE, CHIAROSCURO FROM CARRAVAGGIO TO DAVID LYNCH. This studio based visual arts course will investigate and utilize `chiaroscuro¿ (Italian for light and dark), the ultimate `negative space¿ of the picture plane: that dark spatial void so intrinsic to the `realities¿ of such essential artists as Carravaggio, de la Tour, Goya, Edward Hopper, and filmmakers from Lang and Welles to Lynch and the Quay Brothers. Students will research, design and execute a body of work in their areas of specialization based on this historical and contemporary visual construct. Work will be exhibited in non-traditional environments including photo/video projections and artwork installations in parking garages, landscape sites, and area strip malls. Collaborative performance based events will be encouraged and produced with video and photographic documentation. ARTS 490 ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHY; PORTFOLIO DIGITAL PRINT. Students will use the latest series of Epson archival ink jet printers to produce exhibition/portfolio quality digital prints from their negatives, transparencies, digital files. Comparative studies between traditional fiber based silver printing and ink jet printing will be conducted. Students will conceive, plan, proof and output a series of ink jet prints with special emphasis on calibration/color management, paper/ink profiles, and the newest fine arts ink jet papers available. Students must be photoshop proficient.
