What did you think of the A-B-C format? I really liked having the class split up into three different parts as it is easier to follow and more effective in learning. It doesn’t feel all over the place and in order. Part A we get to learn about other artist in class and then able to take that experience into part B and so on.
What did you think of the 4 Messy Hands activities? (Plaster Casting, Sketching in the Garden, Graffiti Writing & Finger Painting) The 4 messy hand activities were my favorite because we were able to go out to do these activities. we didnt have to stay at school so that makes everything so much more fun and less boring. It also allows us to try something new for example the plaster casting I had never done that ever or graffiti so those were two activities I enjoyed.
What did you think of the 4 Life Design activities? (Design Thinking, ePortfolio, Environmental Portrait, vlog) These were my least favorite besides the vlog i liked the vlog because I thought it was boring doing and eportforlio in an art class i think i wanted to do more hands on art.
What did you think of the Student Choice & One More activities? This were okay to me I don’t have to much to say about these activities.
What did you think of visiting the SOA Galleries, having Conversations with SOA Artists, and blogging about them? I think this was my favorite because you get to see more art and learn about those artist and why they chose the color, the idea the layout. It interesting to hear their story and link that back to yourself.
What did you think of using the class website, glenn.zucman.com/i2va, plus your own websites, instead of BeachBoard? I think its easy to navigate and easier to write for this class since there were many activities. Its easier to display your photos and write about it.
What did you think of using WordPress for your blog? I liked using WordPress because I was able to add pictures and write about my experiences. I liked making my website pretty.
What did you think of using Wix for your ePortfolio? I felt Wix was confusing for me to use I didn’t completely understand how to navigate around.
What did you think of the guest speakers? (Internships, Study Abroad, etc). The guest speakers were very informational and very excited to talk about the programs here CSULB has to offer for us.
What did you think of the times in class when we took time to meet new classmates? How many Art110 peeps did you know before the class started? How many do you know now? I liked that the professor enforced us to talk to people and meet new people. Its good to network with people as in other classes everyone is more to themselves so I liked that Glenn enforced working together and talking to others.
What did you think about having a class with no tests? I don’t just mean “was it cool to not have to take any,” but students use tests to guide their study and participation in a class. Students tend to learn what’s on the test, and to not learn anything that isn’t. Did not having exams make it harder to focus or find importance and relevance in the class? I think having no exams made the class easier and made it more effective for students to actually learn since we were never reading out of a book this class was fun. Where as if we did have exams coming out of a book people would find the class miserable and not much learning would happen students would just memorize for the test and then forget.
Any other thoughts? I think using index cards for attendance we can maybe take on beach board to save paper. I think this is an overall fun class for students taking a GE.
