teaching and learning involves a cri.cal explora.on of ideas, theories, art-‐making prac.ces, and art movements that encompass such things as: the human body, sexuality, race, gender, religions, and cultures. This course can touch upon any of the above categories with an expecta.on that students will ac.vely par.cipate in all course assignments, discussions and tests. Given this informa.on, it is the student’s obliga.on to determine that the requirements conﬂict with his or her core beliefs. If the student determines that there is a conﬂict with his or her beliefs, one of the following ac.ons needs to be taken: 1) drop the class before the last day to drop a course without penalty; 2) meet with the instructor within the ﬁrst week of classes to determine if an accommoda.on can be made. (Note, faculty are not required to grant content accommoda.ons.) If no accommoda.on can be made, drop the course before the last day to drop without penalty.
to see, to understand, and ul.mately to think, create, and communicate graphically. Generally speaking, the visually literate viewer looks at an image carefully, cri.cally, and with an eye for the inten.ons of the image's creator. Those skills can be applied equally to any type of image: photographs, pain.ngs and drawings, graphic art (including everything from poli.cal cartoons to comic books to illustra.ons in children's books), ﬁlms, maps, and various kinds of charts and graphs. All convey informa.on and ideas, and visual literacy allows the viewer to gather the informa.on and ideas contained in an image, place them in context, and determine whether they are valid."
