ART APPRECIATION 1301

FALL 2007

INSTRUCTOR: Elizabeth Simon

 

EXTRA CREDIT

 

Each student may earn up to 10 points of extra credit. The points will be applied to the final exam grade. Extra credit is due Tuesday November 27, 2007. No late papers will be accepted.

 

For extra credit, visit an art museum, other than the Dallas Museum of Art, and write a two-page journal entry (double-space, typed) on your experience. For each journal entry, the student may receive up to 5 points based on merit and quality of work. Therefore, if you go to one museum other than the DMA, you may earn up to 5 points for that journal entry; if you go to two additional museums, you may earn up to 10 points.

 

The instructions for extra credit are identical to the required paper assignment EXCEPT that you must go to a DIFFERENT museum.

 

Select one or two museums from the following list. If you want to go to a museum not on this list, approval must be given by the instructor.
