Illustration projects emphasizing principles of visual communication, development of resource material, composition and preparation of sketches, comprehensives, and finished illustrations in a variety of media.
Illustration is a related sub-discipline for Graphic Design students. The Illustration industry is broad in commercial applications. Usually in ARTS 265 five projects are assigned from different genres of illustration such as Editorial, Fashion, Advertising, Publishing, etc. Introducing this course provides another option for students interested in studying additional genres of the industry and developing their image-making skills. The key for successful employment is a strong portfolio of work and this new course provides additional opportunities for developing client-based work.
updated syllabus as provided by Marius Valdes (17 Aug 2016)
Can you please clarify - the commas between the prerequisite courses, are they "and" statements or "or" statements?
The NCP for ARTS 266 was returned by the Registrar’s Office with a question about the prerequisite. Your proposal lists:
Prerequisite: ARTS 103, ARTS 111, ARTS 112, ARTS 230, or consent of instructor
Does this mean:
Prerequisite: ARTS 103 and ARTS 111 and ARTS 112 and ARTS 230, or consent of instructor
Prerequisite: one of ARTS 103, ARTS 111, ARTS 112, and ARTS 230, or consent of instructor
or something else?
Please make the necessary change, and resubmit.
Thank you for the prompt response to the request for clarifying the prerequisite.
Several corrections to the syllabus need to be addressed.
1. The Learning Outcomes need to be totally reworked and stated using "Action or Measurable" verbs.
Go to the Center for Teaching Excellence site for a guide as to the correct phrasing of the Learning Outcomes. You need to list or bullet beginning with the verb not "Each student will be".
2. USC does not use A+ in it's grading system. Please reconfigure the grading scale.
3. In the "Critique & Final Project section, do you teally mean "match paper" not matte?
Please resubmit this proposal through all the channels to ensure that it arrives back to the Curricula & Courses Committee by Friday Oct 21. It will still have the time to make the November Faculty Senate meeting.
Your proposal is being moed to the Faculty Senate.
